Health Quality Ontario. Optimal onset-to-admission interval for inpatient stroke rehabilitation: a rapid review. Toronto: Health Quality Ontario (HQO). Rapid Review. 2013
The objective of this rapid review is to determine the optimal onset-to-admission interval (OAI) for inpatient stroke rehabilitation therapy.
There is evidence of very low quality that an earlier onset of rehabilitation post stroke (onset of rehabilitation before 14 days) results in increased independency and functionality compared with a later start time for stroke rehabilitation. Until better quality evidence is available the timing of rehabilitation ought to be initiated as soon as the patient is ready.
