Exploring the Adaptability of Tai Chi to Stroke Rehabilitation.
Abstract PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to assess the feasibility, safety, and preliminary estimates of effectiveness of Tai Chi on functional outcomes in stroke survivors. DESIGN: A mixed-method study with a single-group repeated-measure design and in-depth interviews. METHODS: Fourteen stroke survivors with hemiplegia were recruited to participate in a Tai Chi program, twice weekly for 12 months. Outcomes included physical function, self-efficacy, and activity of daily living measured at 3-month intervals for 12 months. FINDINGS: Ten participants (mean age, 68.5 years) completed all assessments...

Factors Influencing the Impact of Depressive Symptoms on Physical Functional Capacity After Cardiac Rehabilitation.
CONCLUSIONS: Depressive symptoms negatively impact physical functional capacity, and this relationship is moderated by family support and the percentage of time exercising in target heart rate zone. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Improving percentage of time exercising in target heart rate zone may be a mechanism by which patients with depressed mood can optimize physical functional capacity.

Recovery of Severe Aphasia After Cranioplasty: Considerations on a Case Study.
e; RS Abstract Cranioplasty is the main surgical intervention for repairing cranial defects performed in about 80% of the patients following cancer surgery or decompressive craniectomy. Although some works have shown recovery of motor and cognitive function, including memory, attention, and executive functions, until today no studies have focused on language recovery after cranioplasty. A 68-year-old woman came to the Neurorehabilitation Unit of the IRCCS Neurolesi (Messina, Italy) because of a fluent aphasia due to a severe left nucleocapsular hemorrhage and greatly improved her motor and neuropsychological statu...

Nursing Students' Knowledge of the Nurse's Role in the Management of Dysphagia.
CONCLUSIONS: Educating nursing students about the nurse's role in the management of dysphagia will increase their knowledge, but this knowledge must be reinforced for integration into clinical practice. More research is needed to determine what education nursing students receive on dysphagia and what the role of the nurse is in the management of dysphagia. CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Dysphagia negatively impacts clinical and rehabilitation outcomes. Because nurses may lack sufficient training in the management of dysphagia, healthcare organizations should offer such training to new hires and then periodically thereafter. Like...
