Health promotion and counseling is an important aspect of patient care. Stroke from cerebrovascular disease is the third leading cause of death in the United States, and the leading cause of long-term disability in the workforce and general population. Discuss a time you have taken care of a stroke patient. What was their age? How debilitating was their stroke? What are stroke warning signs, and risk factors for primary and secondary prevention? What patient and family education did you provide?
