Neuropsychological evaluation and formulation in acute stroke rehabilitation

The seminar will focus on how neuropsychology facilitates rehabilitation in an acute stroke setting. Our approach to neuropsychological evaluation will be described. We will also describe the use of neuropsychological formulation of patients’ difficulties within the multi-disciplinary team and the outcome of this in terms of team understanding of patients’ problems and confidence in working with changes in cognition and/or mood post stroke.
