Developer's Description

Every stroke patient is unique. And considering the fact every patient presents...

Every stroke patient is unique. And considering the fact every patient presents

with different cocktail of challenges, the onus lies on the

physiotherapist/assistant to thoroughly undertake a comprehensive assessment

of each patient taking into cognizance the patient's needs as articulated by the

patient himself or herself.

After a thorough assessment has been undertaken, the goals and treatment

protocol become easy to draft. Remember that all the goals that are drafted in

stroke rehabilitation must be aimed towards the integration of the patient back

into the social set up. And this is a very critical and important goal: so vital that

no Rehabilitation approach could overlook, just as the psychosocial module of

healthcare practice stipulates.

On the contrary, the medical model of healthcare practice primarily focuses on the

patient's clinical condition outside his social environment. Although this

healthcare approach also yields results clinically, it however fails to integrate the

patient back into the society or family. That explicitly explains my preference for

the psychosocial model of rehabilitation over the medical model during my

patients Rehabilitation.

Essence of this App:

The publication of this self-help handbook is intended to serve the long sought

after dream of enlightening stroke patients on their condition and also assisting

them to quick recovery. Moreover, it is my fervent hope that the book would help

to ignite the burning desire in stroke care among Physiotherapist Assistants (in

both Orthodox and Herbal Centres) to embrace evidence-based practice and

appreciate new trends in stroke care through simple illustrative diagrams and

pictures.

In light of the recent rise in the prevalence of stroke attacks among the youthful

population, it is my desire that the information provided here would assist in

alerting the youth also on the need for a healthier lifestyle change.
