Life After Stroke: Educational Video for Stroke Physiotherapists

India

More than 70% of stroke patients in India do not receive any form of rehabilitation and very few rehabilitation centers are available. Physiotherapists working in community hospitals also need training in stroke rehabilitation.

To meet this need, WSO Educational Committee member, Dr. PN Sylaja, with support from the Directorate of Health Services, Government of Kerala together with the comprehensive stroke care program team at Sree Chitra Tirunal Institute for Medical Sciences and Technology, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala, India has made a 40 minute video for physiotherapists which covers all aspects of physiotherapy, starting from positioning, shoulder care to mobilization. Dr. Sylaja has generously made this video available for Stroke Communities all over the world.
