Interprofessional Use of Outcome Measures

The 2010 Best Practice Recommendations for Stroke Care, Section 5.1, Rehabilitation - Assessment Recommendation, states that “Clinicians should use standardized, valid assessment tools to evaluate the patient’s stroke related impairments and functional status.” Outcome Measures Workshops have been held across the region, including in Belleville, Kingston, Perth and Brockville addressing specific area needs. The Southeast Region Stroke Network is involved in ongoing reflection and action planning towards implementation of stroke best practice in outcome measures use.
