The Provision of Feedback in Community Stroke Rehabilitation: The Therapists’ Perspective
Parker J, Mountain G and Mawson S. The Provision of Feedback in Community Stroke Rehabilitation: The Therapists’ Perspective. Phys Med Rehabil Int. 2015; 2(3): 1040.
This paper explores the clinical reasoning and decision making (CRDM) underpinning the provision of feedback during community-based post-stroke rehabilitation by gaining the perspectives of Community Stroke Teams.
In accordance with the ICF model, data suggest the CRDM when providing feedback for stroke rehabilitation in the community is underpinned by the medical, social and contextual components of health. However, how therapists control the rehabilitation process; what they include and who they include is often led by the therapist. This learning experience may impact on further rehabilitation experience(s) or contemporary models of care delivery; such as, autonomous rehabilitation using technology.
