The Orange County Stroke Rehab Network (OCSRN) is an informal group by which all members of the stroke community can gather and communicate with one another about stroke related issues -- on a local level. This includes stroke patients and stroke survivors plus their caregivers, as well as those involved in stroke care, including physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, physicians, nurses, stroke coordinators, educatos, researchers, pharmacists, optometrists, rehabilitation counselors, neuropsychologists, social workers, case managers, discharge planners, vocational rehab, and rehab managers.
Goals of the OCSRN
Forum: Provide a forum for learning, discussion, and interaction with colleagues - all revolving around stroke rehabilitation.
Education: Educate each other, share information, discuss innovative therapies, and possibly collaborate to enhance the quality of care for our patients.
Community: Discuss common interests and goals. Create a compendium of Orange County resources relevant to stroke rehab, such as classes, facilities, transportation, services, treatment protocols, and research opportunities.
The OCSRN is led by Dr. Steven Cramer, MD and Lucy Der-Yeghiaian, MA, OTR/L of UCI's Department of Neurology and the ICTS, and Alison McKenzie, PT, PhD of Chapman University's Department of Physical Therapy.
