Abstract

• Although there is knowledge of the substantial benefits of collaborative approaches to stroke rehabilitation, information on alternative management strategies is sparse.

• This paper describes an exploratory survey, undertaken in the north-west of England, to highlight features of the stroke co-ordinator role.

• The role is explored in terms of rehabilitation management and service development. Some strategies to support practitioners in the role, and areas for role development, are suggested.
