Clinical Pathways in Stroke Rehabilitation

Clinical Pathways in Stroke Rehabilitation-1

Thomas Platz


Evidence-based Clinical Practice

Brain injury caused by stroke is a leading cause of disability with a tendency for an increasing societal burden of stroke-related disability globally. At the same time, our knowledge about effective rehabilitation treatment is rapidly increasing as indicated by the multitude of clinical trials, systematic reviews and meta-analyses being published. For the individual health care professionals involved in stroke rehabilitation, it is hardly possible to keep track with the evolution of clinical evidence and hence there is a risk for an increasing gap between the state of the art in clinical stroke rehabilitation research and clinical practice and decision-making.
