 Early Supported Discharge (ESD) Program

Project title

Organizational and technological innovations for the deployment of patient-oriented best practices: Early Supported Discharge (ESD) for clients who have had a cerebrovascular accident (CVA).

Description of the Project 

A stroke can affect people’s functioning, social participation and quality of life. It is important to intervene quickly with sufficient intervention intensity in order to optimize recovery.

An early supported discharge program (ESD) has been set up as a solution so that the person can begin their intensive functional rehabilitation at home, as soon as they return there. It has been shown that telehealth technologies can facilitate the process regarding certain aspects of the ESD program and potentially improve the results!
