Introduction

According to the 2010 Global Burden of Disease Study (2010), Stroke categorised under Cardiovascular and Circulatory Diseases, is the second leading cause of death globally and the third leading cause of premature death and disability as measured in Disability Adjusted Life Years (DALY). A challenge to global health, the prevalence of stroke and its cost is likely to rise as the aging population increases.

Stroke is a complex pathology with many different clinical presentations each with unique impairments and activity limitations. Physiotherapy can have a massive impact on quality of life of a Stroke survivor.  When working with individuals with acute and chronic impairment as a result of stroke, best practice requires a good understanding of the pathology and skills in assessment and treatment selection and rehabilitation.  Stroke is a large topic area, and can be studied as an area of clinical specialism within Physiotherapy, therefore this course is by no means exhaustive.
