Best Practices in Neurological Care
Part of the Neurology eBook Collection
Edited by Bruce Ovbiagele
Best Practices in Neurological Care addresses common neurological disorders, with a firm emphasis on contemporary (yet pragmatic), patient-centered, multi-modal, evidence-based management. In thirteen chapters, renowned specialists with extensive clinical practice experience present the relevant scientific evidence together with prevailing expert consensus guideline recommendations for managing patients. In those areas where evidence is sparse, authors provide their own management recommendations. Areas of controversy and future promise are also discussed. Much of the inpatient and ambulatory management of neurological conditions occurs at the boundaries of neurology with medical disciplines, hence this book is of pragmatic value not only to neurologists in training and practice, but also to others, such as emergency physicians, intensivists, hospitalists, general internists, family practitioners, psychiatrists, physiatrists, neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons.
