Brief description The Australian stroke guidelines recommend that intensive rehabilitation (60 mins practice/day) should commence as soon as possible after stroke onset, however this rarely occurs in clinical practice. The proposed research will explore this evidence-practice gap, and develop a protocol to improve early rehabilitation for patients hospitalised with acute stroke. The early rehabilitation protocol will then be tested in four acute stroke units for safety and feasibility.
