Nurses in hospital, general practice and the community will frequently encounter patients with neurological disorders, both as primary cause of consultation, and as co-existing disease. This portable handbook provides support from a number of perspectives for practitioners caring for patients with neurological disorders. The neuroscience nurse will use this as a training/mentoring tool. The experienced generalist nurse on the ward will find this an invaluable aide-memoire. Nurses in general practice and the community will use as a reference when dealing with individual patients with chronic disease. Student nurses on clinical placements will find this an invaluable introduction to a complex and fascinating field of care. A summary of neurological danger signs introduces the pocket reference , followed by a brief outline of the nervous system. The second section provides a thorough understanding of the different methods of assessment of neurological disease. Part three is a concise overview of ten major neurological conditions, reviewing: causes, signs and symptoms, diagnosis, treatment and nursing care. This is an invaluable resource for the practising nurse, and for shared use in ward, clinic and community.
