Abstract/Description

My poster will represent the research findings on Post-Stroke Early Therapy. The findings of multiple studies and articles revealed that starting therapy and ambulation within 24 to 48 hours after a stroke can improve outcomes and discharge patients home sooner in order to have a quicker recovery. Florence Nightingale's Environmental Theory guided my research and became the base of my research. The home environment provides a therapeutic and comforting setting by providing proper light, noise, nutrition, ventilation, warming, bedding, cleanliness, hygiene, and social support and interaction needed for healing and recovery.
