Abstract

It is estimated that up to three quarters of acute and subacute stroke survivors exhibit cognitive impairment, with many experiencing ongoing problems.1,2 Cognitive impairment can significantly compromise functional recovery, quality of life, and social engagement after stroke.2?4 Encouragingly early detection and rehabilitation can improve functional recovery of stroke-related impairments.5 Unfortunately, however, a significant amount of cognitive dysfunction is not detected by health professionals in acute and subacute settings
