New Video: Post-stroke intervention helps older adults transition home from hospital

In our latest video hear from researchers, a patient and members of the healthcare team on how our post-stroke intervention helps improve the move from hospital to home for older stroke patients with chronic conditions.

It can be challenging for older adult stroke survivors, with chronic conditions, their family caregivers and their health care providers to navigate and coordinate outpatient rehabilitation services for optimal stroke recovery.

This intervention is a new approach that involves an interprofessional stroke team who provide regular in-home visits and conduct monthly case conferences, supported by the web-based application (app) MyST (My Stroke Team).
