The Oxford Handbook of Neuroscience Nursing is an invaluable resource when you need relevant and practical clinical guidance in dealing with complex clinical situations, or when caring for people with neurological problems for the first time. It will enable you to meet the needs of people with neurological problems wherever you encounter them, be it in a neurology, neurosurgery, critical care or rehabilitation setting, and will therefore enable you to meet the requirements of the National Service Framework. The book is organised in a way that separates the major neuroscience disciplines of neurology, neurosurgery, neuroscience critical care and neurorehabilitation, with extensive cross-referencing between sections. It will provide enough information to manage the initial care of the patient with most commonly encountered conditions. Practical guidance is also provided about neurological assessment and investigations, commonly used drugs in neuroscience practice, dealing with neurological emergencies, and the legal and ethical issues surrounding the profession. Complementary therapies applied to neuroscience practice are also discussed.
Next time practical guidance is needed on the management of a particular patient, or information is required to manage a particular situation, then the Oxford Handbook of Neuroscience Nursing will provide you with the answers you need in a succinct and functional way.
