Quality-Based Procedures: Clinical Handbook for Stroke

The Quality-Based Procedures: Clinical Handbook for Stroke (December 2015) includes sections on Inpatient Rehabilitation (Module 4), Early Supported Discharge (module 7) and Community Treatment (module 9).


The following links to external websites may be helpful for stroke survivors and families/caregivers as well as healthcare providers:

The Champlain Healthline website lists a number of resources for patients, families, caregivers, and healthcare providers.

The Heart and Stroke Foundation website is another helpful resource.  Information provided on this site can help answer many questions about rehabilitation, like How long will rehab last? Where will I receive rehab? Who will provide rehab?

Stroke Engine is another online resource for clinicians as well as patients, families, and caregivers. On this site you will find a wealth of information about stroke, including information about stroke rehabilitation. The site offers information about many of the therapies that the stroke rehab team will use to improve the patient’s functionality, describes how the therapy is carried out, and explains the expected benefits.

The Ontario Stroke Network Stroke QBP Resources page provides many resources helpful for stroke rehabilitation providers.
