Personal experience on the use of PMIC


The Calabria group of the PMIC reports its experience, on the application of the protocol of minimal appraisal in some rehabilitative structures that represent the possible different settings for strokes in the Calabria Region. The total data will be exposed. The number of the collate cards exceeds 450 cases, thus constituting a meaningful collection of regional data that could be used in order to photograph the state of the patient with a stroke in Calabria and in order to program more and more appropriate rehabilitative intervention and settings, in order to rationalize the use of the employed resources.
