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.

Perceived Strengths and Needs After Rehabilitation in Community-Dwelling Adults With Chronic Stroke

What the fuck? Are you that goddamned stupid that you can't figure out that stroke survivors want 100% recovery? Get them there.  Social participation is your highest fucking idea of recovery? Have you ever talked to a highly cognitive functioning survivor?

Abstract
Date Presented 3/31/2017
This study evaluated self-perceived impact of injury on activity performance and satisfaction of adults with chronic stroke. The results showed that being engaged in community-based support programs provided gains in self-perceived activity performance and offered opportunities for social participation.
