ABOUT THE CANADIAN STROKE COMMUNITY-BASED EXERCISE RECOMMENDATIONS UPDATE 2020
- The Canadian Stroke Community-based Exercise Recommendations (CSCER) were developed to support the translation of best evidence (research, best practice guidelines, and expert opinion) into clear recommendations for program and exercise providers to support the implementation of safe and appropriate exercise programs for people with stroke in a variety of community settings.
- A national inter-professional writing group of healthcare professionals and researchers from across Canada with expertise in stroke, best practices in stroke care, and implementation of community exercise programming iteratively revised and appraised the CSCER. The CSCER and companion brochure were reviewed by leading experts, including researchers, healthcare professionals, community program and exercise providers, and people with stroke and caregivers.
- The final guideline includes 8 core recommendations specific to the content and delivery of community exercise programs, a summary of the evidence, and resources to support Canada-wide implementation.
- A companion guide is also available to assist people with stroke and their caregivers in choosing a community exercise program to meet their need
COMING SOON - The Exercise Recommendations and the Companion Guide for people with stroke and their caregivers will be available in French.
