Project Description

Background

  • Stroke is not only a life threatening disease, but is also associated with permanent impairments and various complications
  • Few data exist on the ambulant aftercare of patients after their discharge from the acute setting or rehabilitation facilities

Aims and Objectives

  • Identification of type and gravity of impairments several months/years after an acute stroke episode
  • Determination of open (currently unmet) medical and social needs of stroke patients
  • Based on the data obtained, a long term goal is to establish an integrated aftercare pathway for stroke patients that goes beyond the rehabilitation phase

Methods

  • Patients released to the ambulant setting are re-invited into the clinic, subjected to a medical examination and screened for open medical/social needs via the use of scores that help determine the long term outcome of typical stroke related complications
