Most patients who experience a stroke or TIA will require some form of physical or cognitive rehabilitation. Early consultation with rehabilitation professionals contributes to reductions in complications from immobility such as joint contracture, falls, aspiration pneumonia, and deep vein thrombosis. There is evidence that an interprofessional approach bringing together clinicians with different skill sets is one of the factors that results in reduced deaths in specialized stroke units.
