The need for stroke rehabilitation will lessen if stroke incidence declines and acute stroke medical and surgical treatment improves. The burden of stroke will also lessen as effective rehabilitation services (stroke rehabilitation units) and interventions are widely implemented. Despite the considerable amount of evidence available, implementation has been slow. Improvement in stroke rehabilitation will require continued professional advocacy, supported by local and national audit and future focused research.
