Researching Post Stroke Rehabilitation Outcome

Although stroke was described by Hippocrates, it is only in the last few decades that it has become the focus of academic investigation. Currently, it is the third highest cause of death (behind coronary artery disease and cancer) and the leading cause of chronic disability in adults in Palestine. Recent years, however, have seen prolific research into stroke, and we can now call on a large body of knowledge not only about etiological factors and acute treatment, but also attesting to the benefit that patients derive from rehabilitation processes and philosophies. The most powerful predictors of functional recovery and eventual home discharge among stroke survivors are the initial severity of the stroke and the patient's age. We are currently analyzing a large population of stroke rehabilitation admissions by stratifying subgroups with coherent outcomes in an attempt to define potentially more efficient patterns of providing rehabilitation care.
