How to Help Your Post-Stroke/TIA Patient: Introducing Lifestyle Medicine - Live
Post-stroke and TIA patients return to their primary provider with a variety of questions, new diagnoses, and more often than not, disabilities that change the way they will be living their life going forward. Engaging with these patients in an empowering manner by focusing on the main tenets of Lifestyle Medicine can aid to shift the focus for these patients from what they have lost to what they can gain as they face their stroke recovery process. We will highlight various aspects of Lifestyle Medicine such as sleep, nutrition, physical activity, and mindfulness that not only have immediate impact on reducing stroke recurrence, but also are being studied to show great benefit towards, not only stroke recovery, but increased quality of life. Learners will be provided tips on engaging in this type of dialogue with patients and their families as well as a host of resources they can take back into their practice to share this information immediately.
