Description

For many people who have had a stroke, weakness or paralysis on one side - hemiparesis or hemiplegia - is the most obvious symptom. However, brain damage, including stroke, can cause a range of impairments that may be less obvious but equally devastating for people and their families. This module provides an overview of communication, movement and perception difficulties, and the strategies nurses can use to help people cope with any changes to their lives.

Objectives

After completing this module you should be able to:
1. Discuss the difference between Broca’s and Wernicke’s aphasia.

2. Consider the effect of these and other communication difficulties.

3. Discuss possible effects of apraxia.

4. Discuss visual problems including agnosia, hemianopia and hemispatial neglect.

5. Recognise the effect of fatigue and depression on ability to cope with long-term disabilities.

6. Outline ways that nurses can help people cope with long-term impairments.
