Portrait of driving practice following a mild stroke: a secondary analysis of a chart audit.
Conclusion: The proportion of charts documenting driving restriction post-stroke in acute care was very low. Assuming that all driving discussions and referrals were captured in the charts (which may not be the case), our results would indicate an important gap in acute care practice as compared to best practices relating to driving post-stroke.

The post-stroke upper limb improvement effort survey (IMPETUS): asurvey of individuals with chronic stroke.
CONCLUSIONS: Participants desired more arm/hand strength, function, and recovery that they perceived they had achieved.

Very early cognitive screening and return to work after stroke.
Conclusions: Screening for cognitive impairments at 36-48-h post stroke is apparently too early for predicting RTW, and thus cannot be the sole basis for discharge planning after stroke.

Associations between characteristics of stroke survivors and caregiver depressive symptoms: a critical review.
Conclusions: Health-care providers should be aware that depressive symptoms in one member of a stroke survivor-caregiver dyad may indicate risk for depressive symptoms in the other. Screening both individuals may lead to earlier detection and provide information to guide interventions. Knowing risk factors for stroke caregiver depression may improve prevention/management, but further investigation is needed. PMID: 31303131 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Cross-sectional study of quadriceps properties and postural stability in patients with chronic stroke and limited vs. non-limited community ambulation.
Conclusions: Subjects of the FG, despite showing full community ambulation speed, had less quadriceps strength and VI muscle thickness but not RF muscle wasting in the paretic limb. The paretic VI muscle wasting may be an important factor to reach normal walking. The SG showed between-limb differences in all the studied variables and the worst postural stability.
