Changing Stroke: Radical Rethink of Recovery

Isobel Hubbard

Are you a health professional who works with people recovering from stroke? If so, this book has been written specially for you. In the past twenty years our increased understanding of the human brain has greatly improved our understanding of recovery after stroke. Now is the time to radically rethink our approach to managing stroke, because stroke is a brain-based problem that needs a brain-based solution.

Changing Stroke challenges health care professionals to reconsider their own clinical practice. In this book, Dr Isobel Hubbard uses everyday language to explore the complexities of stroke, from risk through to recovery. Dr Hubbard is an occupational therapist, academic researcher and company director. She coordinates the stroke specialisation in a post-graduate university program and has researched arm and hand recovery and brain activation patterns after stroke. Isobel uses her expertise to describe a new way forward in stroke-related, clinical practice.
