From Secondary to Primary care and beyond.. Challenges in the longer term management and rehabilitation following Stroke and Acquired Brain Injury. Wh

Patients and relatives are often told recovery after stroke and ABI plateaus or stops after 12-18 months. The access to ongoing specialist Neurorehabilitation within the community and management of longer term complications such as spasticity, fatigue and pain is challenging and often inadequate. There is increasing evidence that recovery is possible many months post ABI; raising the question who actually plateaus or stops – is it us rather than the patient?
