Stroke is one of the most commonly seen diagnoses in hospitals, subacute, acute, outpatient centers and home health.

The majority of the course covers functional limitations observed after a stroke.

All in all, this course will help you be a better patient advocate, which is one of the best things we can do for our patients!
