  • TITLE: The Evidence of Interdisciplinary Teamwork in the Rehabilitation of Stroke Patients with Aphasia

    AUTHORS: Signe Vallumrød, Tone Knudsen Oddvang, Elisabeth Severinsson

    KEYWORDS: Stroke, Aphasia, Communication, Interdisciplinary Team, Rehabilitation, Assessment Tool

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Nursing, Vol.6 No.9, September 29, 2016

    ABSTRACT: The aim of this review was to investigate the evidence of interdisciplinary teamwork in the rehabilitation of stroke patients with aphasia. A total of 248 studies were read and nine included. The papers were analysed and data were extracted by categorizing the four components of rehabilitation: assessment, goal setting, intervention and reassessment. The results revealed that interdisciplinary teamwork was a prerequisite for rehabilitation and that nurses’ position in post-stroke care was unclear and limited. In addition, rehabilitation strategies, interdisciplinary cooperation, education and training are important aspects of the rehabilitation process. This study highlights the need for one valid and reliable assessment tool that incorporates communication problems. In conclusion, persons with aphasia should be more involved in their own rehabilitation, which means that the interdisciplinary team members must be educated to communicate appropriately with them.
