Survey aimed at improving stroke services launched
An island-wide survey being carried out to better understand stroke rehabilitation services has been launched.
Evolution Healing Centre, a physiotherapy rehabilitation clinic, is now distributing the online survey which can be accessed here.
It is aimed at anyone who lives in Bermuda who has experienced a stroke incident and had stroke rehabilitation on the island.
Kim Watkins, a senior physiotherapist with the Evolution Healing Centre, said: “We believe that this survey is an important first step in gathering data that can be used to improve services.
“There is a global push to improve rehabilitation services and Bermuda has the opportunity to take a strong lead given its size and ability to leverage healthcare practitioners in the areas of need.”
The Ministry of Health has identified stroke as the second leading cause of death in Bermuda in 2019 and the third leading cause of disability in Bermuda.
