  • Details

Written with all members of the stroke care team in mind to encourage multidisiplinary working and a holistic approach to problems.

Aimed at all the members of the stroke team, including doctors, nurses, stroke co-ordinators, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and speech and language therapy members, this new edition provides a holistic approach to the care of patients with transient ischemic attacks (TIA) and stroke. It covers the wide range of knowledge and skills needed to tackle problems that may lead up to, or follow on from a stroke, and follows the course of a patient's journey from diagnosis to life at home, incorporating recent changes in the field and the latest clinical trials. It also covers the principles of rehabilitation, as well as secondary prevention, discharge planning, specific interventions, prognosis for various neurological deficits, and longer terms problems, including spasticity and psychiatric complications.
