VI: Older People and Stroke

Older People and Stroke
August 2010

Edited by Brenda Roe

Stroke is a neurovascular event estimated to affect over 15 million people worldwide resulting in death or disability. This virtual issue of JAN comprises a selection of six key papers from 2009 related to older people and stroke including a systematic review and studies from a range of countries (Canada, England, Hong Kong -China, Netherlands & Sweden). Studies predominantly included small sample sizes based in stroke or stroke rehabilitation units. Each of these papers provides detailed results and findings. Their implications resonate across all and their findings are relevant for policy, organisation and delivery of stroke care, nursing practice and future research with inter- professional practice, collaboration and partnerships fundamental and task orientated and communication rehabilitation programmes recommended.
