Managing the Stroke Rehabilitation Triage Process
The challenge of constructing an exemplary stroke rehabilitation system is balancing the attempt to maximize patient outcomes while controlling costs. This review, using findings from Modules 5 through 7 and from evidence based on consensus opinions, presents research on the stroke rehabilitation triage process. Evidence on patient screening, establishing assessment criteria, stroke severity, and unit location is reported. As well, a potential stroke rehabilitation triage system is proposed.
