What is this article about?

Stroke is a leading cause of disability and mortality in Australia, affecting about 50 000 people every year. Over 475 000 Australians are currently living with the effects of stroke. These people may experience a variety of physical and psychological problems, including motor function impairment, memory and cognitive issues and difficulties with language and speech. About one-third of people who have experienced a stroke are living with a disability that affects their daily life. While some people who experience a stroke are already receiving care, others may need to start receiving care after a stroke (at home or at a live-in facility) if their care needs change significantly. It is important that you know how to appropriately care for clients who have experienced a stroke, as they have complex and diverse care needs.

Sometimes I find it really hard to make time for my learning, but I was blown away by how easy it is with the Ausmed app. I can fit it in during breaks or on the bus to work.
