Improving upper limb function after stroke

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Upper limb weakness following a stroke affects patients’ abilities to undertake activities of daily living and has a negative impact on rehabilitation treatment. Nurses have a role in providing therapy to patients and will need to apply expert clinical judgement and reasoning to assess and identify the effects of individual treatment techniques for patients with upper limb weakness. This Cochrane overview of 40 systematic reviews explored which interventions improve upper limb recovery and function (Pollock et al, 2014).
