The Community Stroke Rehabilitation Program (CSRP) 2021-22 Annual Report and Infographic have been released jointly by Home and Community Care Support Services and the Stroke Network of Southeastern Ontario. The Infographic is a printer-friendly, high-level summary of the CSRP with key findings from this past year. In response to feedback provided by stakeholders and Community Stroke Rehab Program (CSRP) providers, this reformatted CSRP Annual Report was released in October 2022. The report allows readers to navigate content based on their interests. Data tables and charts are embedded throughout the report that summarize program activity regionally and locally.
In 2021-22, total number of visits and patients served was down 4% from the previous year. This the first time since the program began in 2009 that there was a decrease in the number of patients referred. Across the entire southeast region, the number of visits patients received remained stable with a median of 11 visits per patient (virtual visits are included in visit counts). Patients did experience an increase in the number of days to receive a therapy visit, rising from 4 days to 5 days.
As in 2020-21, patients continued to receive some virtual visits as a part of the CSRP. Over the past year, 78% of patients received at least one of their therapy visits virtually. Virtual visits were used by all disciplines in our region, with 70% of patients receiving Occupational Therapy, followed by Physiotherapy (58%), Social Work (42%) and Speech Language Pathology (41%).
The report also includes information about quality improvement projects underway in the Southeast. This includes links to the CorHealth Community Stroke Rehab Model of Care document released in September 2022. The Stroke Network of SEO is looking forward to updating the region on new developments in community stroke rehabilitation as provincial work led by CorHealth Ontario proceeds over the coming year.
