As part of a review of the national guidelines for stroke (NICE Guideline ‘Stroke Rehabilitation in Adults’ CG162 - recommendations 1.2.16 and 1.2.17), it was decided to assess the implementation, effectiveness and perceived benefit of group therapy sessions on the stroke rehabilitation unit.
The project was completed on the 28 bedded inpatient stroke unit at Leighton hospital, part of Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This comprises of 20 stroke rehabilitation beds and 8 acute stroke beds, providing care for people living in Cheshire and beyond.
The Stroke Rehabilitation therapy team introduced group therapy sessions as a project in September 2017 and initially audited the results for 1 month.
