Description: Background Stroke recovery can be affected by different components. The primary attention goes to functional status. Nursing specific rehabilitation competencies can have an impact on the daily activities as the nursing staff covers 24 over 24h, and all the basic human needs. The functional impact can be affected by any single intervention and by the different members of the team that is taking care of the stroke survivor. Functional Independence Measurement and Barthel Index can be two of the measurement tools for functional condition, and both have input from the nursing team.
