About this presentation
The Canadian Stroke Best Practice Recommendations for Stroke Rehabilitation provides guidance for healthcare providers supporting people returning to work after a stroke. People who have experienced a stroke or heart condition can face challenges when returning to their previous role due to physical, communication, psychological, and cognitive changes. During this webinar, Dr. Allan Garland will discuss his research published this year that demonstrates the impact that stroke and cardiovascular events have on an individual’s work and earnings. This will be followed by two occupational therapists who are experts in vocational rehabilitation and they will provide practical approaches and strategies to support people who are planning to return to work following a stroke or cardiac event. Participants will learn more about implementation of our stroke best practice recommendations, research, strategies, and assessments for people who are returning to work or looking into vocational opportunities following a stroke or heart condition.
Learning Objectives
Participants of this program will be able to:
  1. Explain the impact that stroke and cardiovascular events can have on an individual’s work and earnings.
  2. Identify relevant issues around returning to work that people experience following a stroke or heart condition.
  3. Discuss vocational assessments, working with employers, and other relevant strategies for healthcare providers to advocate for people who have experienced a stroke or heart condition and their family and caregivers.
  4. Engage in meaningful discussions with people who have experienced a stroke or heart condition and the challenges and opportunities they experienced when returning to work.
