Stroke in young adults is a major issue in the United States. Although the appreciation for the complexities associated with young stroke rehabilitation have been recognized, this population experiences complex and dynamic needs that may not be supported by current systems of care. In fact, stroke rehabilitation in the United States is often fragmented which contributes to challenges with comprehensive and coordinated care. This is particularly problematic during transitions of care and after discharge to the community. The invited speakers will discuss young stroke, transitions of care, discharge preparedness, and an ongoing needs assessment being conducted.
