Description

Rehabilitation medicine is one of the fastest growing specialities in medicine. The largest sub-set of this field is neurological rehabilitation. This timely book, presented as a series of case studies, describes the wide range of clinical scenarios encountered by the rehabilitation medicine team and advises on management issues and options. Areas covered include ethical, medico-legal and social factors, touching on issues such as service organisation and patient reintegration. The book concludes with a set of multiple choice questions to test understanding and as the basis for preparation for professional examinations. This will be essential reading for all trainees in rehabilitation medicine, specialists from fields such as neurology where an understanding of the principles is important, and professionals from supportive allied health disciplines including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and nursing.

'... this book will be of value to young doctors undergoing specialist training in rehabilitation medicine or neurology. It will also be valuable in the continuous professional development of specialists active in this area.' Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine 'This innovative new book provides current, highly practical and enjoyable text to refer to when dealing with the usual mix of cases seen in a typical neurological rehabilitation service. ... The author presents the cases in an uncomplicated way, allowing non-medically trained clinicians to follow the arguments with ease. ... Overall this is a well-written, interesting and handy practical guide that would be useful for any clinician dealing with long-term neurological conditions whether s/he is a doctor, therapist or nurse.' Advances in Clinical Neuroscience and Rehabilitation '... a useful study resource and overview of common neurologic problems that arise in patients on the rehabilitation floor.' Doody's Book Review "Helps medical students understand key neurologic pathology that they will come across on the medical ward, and residents with solutions to these problems. In addition, it is a study aid for fellows and senior residents for the oral boards...a useful study resource and overview of common neurologic problems that arise in patients on the rehabilitation floor. Not intended as an exhaustive resource, the book accomplishes its goal of capturing key common critical concepts."
