Course Overview

This course is the Department of Veterans Affairs and Department of Defense’s Clinical Practice Guideline for the Management of Stroke Rehabilitation.

This guideline was developed to assist facilities to implement processes of care that are evidence-based and designed to achieve maximum functionality and independence as well as improve patient and family quality of life. To facilities lacking an organized RBU, it will provide a structured approach to stroke care and assure that those who experience a stroke will have access to comparable care, regardless of geographic location.
