Speaking of EDGE task forces (Neuro recommendations)

In the previous post I mentioned the GeriEDGE task force.  In the same October 2013 issue of PTJ, there is an article Outcome Measures for Individuals with Stroke: Process and Recommendations From the American Physical Therapy Association Neurology Section Task Force.  I like how they broke it down into the ICF model (body structure/ function, activity, participation) and then made recommendations for patient acuity, practice setting, and educational exposure.  I will be sure to consult these recommendations when I evaluate a patient with a CVA either in the SNF/TCU setting or in the OP clinic.

Of note, the Neuro section also has posted these and other recommendation summaries on their website:
