Neuroscience Nursing is a comprehensive, practical text that reflects both the richness and the diversity of contemporary neuroscience nursing. This important new text aims to inform the practice of neuroscience nursing through the report of current research, best available evidence, policy and education.
This important new book is divided into several sections exploring: anatomy and physiology of the nervous system; assessment, interpretation and management of specific problems in the neurological patient; neurological investigations and neurosurgical procedures; management of patients with intracranial disorders; and management of patients with long-term conditions. It also explores the underpinning concepts of neuroscience care, including its history and development, and legal and ethical issues. Uniquely, this text also includes patients’ perspectives of living with a variety of neurological conditions.
