A stroke can change the lives of stroke survivors and their family members due to the physical, social, emotional, and economic toll of the disease. To optimize health and well-being after a stroke, disease management programs have been developed.

Disease management programs are increasingly being used to help treat chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular diseases and stroke. The term “disease management” typically refers to multidisciplinary efforts (doctors, nurses, pharmacists, dieticians, therapists) to improve the quality and cost-effectiveness of care for select patients with chronic illness (Circulation, June 1, 2004: 109(21); 2651-2654).
