Stroke Rehabilitation for the budding Occupational Therapist

Synopsis

In Singapore, stroke is among the top causes of hospitalisation and disability. Occupational Therapists play a vital role in the rehabilitation of stroke patients. Managing the myriad of deficits in a patient affected by stroke can be challenging for a novice OT or an OT newly rotated into a neuro caseload.
