The Correlation Between the Length of Stay and Improvements in Post Acute Care Stroke Patients
To investigate whether the duration of hospitalization in post acute care(PAC) correlates to the patients ’ improvements since there’s no research evaluating the effects of PAC for stroke patients ever since the PAC plan inaugurated in Taiwan. PAC is a transitional care following acute medical stage for stroke patients and offering a more intensive rehabilitative program. According to National Healt h Insurance in Taiwan, only patients encountered acute stroke within one month, under relative stable medical condition and had potential for aggressive rehabilitation could transfer to PAC institution.

Driving After Mild Stroke
In the U.S. over 305,000 people have a mild stroke each year.1 Even mild stroke may lead to difficulties with physical function, thinking, and vision.2 Because of these challenges, people with mild stroke can complete basic tasks fairly easily, but may have difficulty returning to complex tasks like driving.2 Approximately 1 out of every 5 adults with mild stroke report difficulty with driving.3

Interdisciplinary Approaches to Facilitate Return to Driving and Return to Work in Mild Stroke: A Position Paper
Adults with mild stroke face substantial challenges resuming valued roles in the community. The term “mild” provides false representation of the lived experience for many adults with mild stroke who may continue to experience persistent challenges and unmet needs. Rehabilitation practitioners can identify and consequently intervene to facilitate improved independence, participation, and quality of life by facilitating function and reducing the burden of lost abilities among adults with mild stroke.
