Tennessee Stroke Rehabilitation Tool

The American Heart Association Tennessee Stroke Systems Task force Rehabilitation Subcommittee has a goal to ensure that every stroke survivor receives the appropriate services to maximize their recovery. The Subcommittee has chosen to address this goal through a new educational tool for case managers and discharge planners in the acute hospital setting. This tool is designed to provide a guide in choosing appropriate services and the most beneficial post-acute setting. The continuum of care for stroke survivors is a complex one, and this tool is an attempt to simplify and explain the rehabilitation options available and appropriate consultation of therapists.
