Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.

Sex is incredibly helpful in your recovery, what is your doctor doing to encourage that?

From the 1Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Royal Melbourne Hospital and 2Department of Medicine (Royal Melbourne Hospital),
University of Melbourne, Australia

Background: Sexual activity is an integral part of
life; it is important to address sexual health after
stroke, but this is often poorly done.
Objective: To assess the effectiveness of a structured
sexual rehabilitation programme compared with
written information alone regarding sexual and psychological
functioning (anxiety, depression, stress),
functional independence and quality of life in an
Australian stroke cohort.
Methods: A total of 68 participants were randomized
to a structured sexual rehabilitation programme
(treatment group; n = 35) or to written information
alone (control group; n = 33). Outcome measures
included: Sexual Functioning Questionnaire Short
Form; Depression, Anxiety Stress Scale; Functional
Independence Measure, and Stroke and Aphasia
Quality of Life Scale-39 Generic. Assessments were
performed at baseline, 6 weeks and 6 months after
the intervention. Participant’s preferences regarding
how they would like to receive information, who
from, and how frequently, were collected at baseline.
Results: There was no difference between groups
for any outcome measures. Half of the participants
(51%) wished to receive information and were divided
equally into preferring written information vs
face-to-face counselling, with the majority (54%)
preferring information after discharge from an inpatient
Conclusion: Provision of written information alone
appears to be as effective as a 30-min individualized
sexual rehabilitation programme in an inpatient
setting. Further research is needed regarding longer
term outcomes and outpatient settings.
