The stroke rehabilitation is performed by the multidisciplinary team, and also its stream must be seamless from acute to recovery and chronic stages. Recently in Japan, because of the functional individualization of the hospitals, the stroke rehabilitation has been performed on the local basis. The clinical pathway is one of the tools for the information transmission of the stroke patients among local hospitals. In this paper, I described the knowledge of the rehabilitation necessary for the clinical pathways for the local stroke network as follows: 1) the rehabilitation in each phase of stroke, 2) the discharge planning, 3) assessment tools for stroke disabilities, 4) multidisciplinary team approach, 5) sharing the information and 6) usage of information on personal independence in activities of daily living. Particularly, the understanding of the stream of stroke rehabilitation is most important timely to provide the stroke patients with appropriate rehabilitation.
