Summary:

Interprofessional teamwork is a contemporary approach to healthcare that assumes a working understanding of each team member’s roles and areas of expertise within the working group. This case-based article reflects the perspectives of four professionals with expertise in providing medical and rehabilitative services to an older adult who has experienced a left hemispheric stroke soon after having surgery for knee replacement. It explains the evaluation and intervention approaches and reasoning of a nurse, physical therapist, occupational therapist and speech-language pathologist, and considers how they work with one another, with other professional care providers, and with the patient and his/her family to provide excellent care during the rehabilitation process. By completing this module, you will be better prepared to function interprofessionally in an adult rehabilitation context.

Objectives:

The goal of this interprofessional continuing education module is to provide an overview of the roles and interactions among a nurse, physical therapist, occupational therapist and speech-language pathologist as they address the complex rehabilitation and medical needs of an older adult who has experienced a post-surgical ischemic stroke. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe the distinct and interactive roles of nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists who work in concert to address the immediate and long-term needs of an older adult patient with complex health problems
  • Articulate typical assessment and intervention approaches across the acute care and rehabilitation phases of treating an older adult patient who has experienced an embolic stroke
  • Explain how the roles and functions of an interprofessional healthcare team complement one another, requiring interprofessional communication and coordination of services
