Apathy and depression are two common complications of stroke which can negatively impact a person’s recovery. This course will review possible contributions of psychosocial and neuroanatomical factors to the development of post-stroke apathy and depression, and use case examples to illustrate how physical therapists can overcome these complications to improve patient outcomes. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA.
