represents a major public health problem. It is the third
most common cause of death in the UK and the
single most common cause of severe disability.
Every year, over 110,000 people in the UK suffer a stroke and more
than 300,000 people live with disabilities caused by stroke.
Recent studies have shown that the
neuropsychiatric complications of stroke have a negative effect on
recovery of motor function, social functioning and overall quality
of life of the survivor.
In this module, we look at the neuropsychiatric presentations
following stroke, which include depression, anxiety,
irritability, apathy, emotionalism, suicidality, mania, psychosis
and cognitive impairment.
