about

Written for health professionals and managers involved in the planning or provision of stroke care, this book provides a comprehensive, state-of-the-art overview of the evidence and practices that underpin high quality stroke care. It sets the scene by describing the epidemiology, trends and needs of stroke patients, followed by chapters on the prevention of stroke, investigation and management of TIAs (transient ischaemic attack), early management and thrombolysis, clinical management of acute stroke patients and rehabilitation. Each chapter is thematically-linked and provides a complete, up-to-date review of evidence, its implications for clinical practice, proven multidisciplinary models of delivering high quality care, organisation of services for greatest impact within cost constraints and emerging areas for future management of stroke patients.
