Louise @Louisepenny87
@chungsongyau It’s important to consider location of stroke to help support decision making and to communicate more clearly around the neglect / hemianopia issue. You need to k ow what you are assessing. I think consistency in team communication & terminology is important here too #OTalk
RCOT Neuro Practice @RCOT_NP

Charlie Chung @chungsongyau
#OTalk In our acute stroke unit, the orthoptists trained the MDT in administering acuity assessments, so at least this aspect of a person's vision (not necessarily impacted by the stroke) could be known right away. This allows assessments and rehab to proceed with confidence
Aisling Durkin @ais_d
