Stroke Part 2: Evaluation & Treatment | OT Miri

Stroke Study Notes:
Here is part 2 of my stroke series where I go over evaluation and treatment strategies for motor impairment including the upper extremity. I poured my heart into making this video for you, with hopes that you will not only feel more confident, but that you'll feel inspired and empowered as you continue your journey to become an occupational therapy practitioner. So my friends, please watch this video and study with me, not for the single purpose of passing your exam, but for the greater purpose of becoming the therapist that you always dreamed of becoming- and one I know you're capable of becoming. I am always rooting for you.
If you are considering working in the neuro setting, take a look through the list of stroke-related courses below, many of which are taught by Jan Davis, who is one of the most highly regarded occupational therapist in the field.
