Additional Information

Official title Comparative Effectiveness of Rehabilitation Services for Survivors of Acute Ischemic Stroke
Principal investigator Janet Bettger, ScD
Description The investigators will seek to answer three questions: 1. What are the person- and system-level factors associated with use of rehabilitation services following acute ischemic stroke? 2. Among stroke survivors discharged to short-term inpatient rehabilitation, are high-intensity services performed at an Inpatient Rehabilitation Facility (IRF) more effective than lower intensity services performed at a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF), at improving patient outcomes at 3 and 12 months? 3. Among stroke survivors discharged home, are outpatient services more effective than home health services, and are outpatient or home health services more effective than no services, at improving patient outcomes at 3 and 12 months?
