PMID: 30676883.


Stroke is a common cause of death and adult chronic neurologic disability. Although factors such as cardiovascular disease affect the incidence of stroke, less is known about factors influencing longitudinal stroke outcomes. The purpose of this research was to assess the contribution of executive functioning (EF) at discharge to the prediction of functional status at several timepoints between discharge from a stroke rehabilitation unit and 12 months, in comparison with depression, mental status, comorbidity, and pain at discharge, and daily functioning prior to admission.
