Telehealth delivery of memory rehabilitation following stroke

posted on 2020-07-08, 01:17 authored by David Wentworth Lawson
Memory difficulties are common after stroke, yet many have limited access to rehabilitation services, particularly in rural areas. This thesis examines telehealth delivery for memory rehabilitation after stroke and demonstrates that telehealth is at least comparable to face-to-face methods in improving everyday memory functioning. This thesis also explores benefits and barriers to adoption by rehabilitation clinicians and stroke survivors, and presents implications and recommendations for implementation of telehealth in stroke healthcare.
