Stroke is the most common cause of adult disability and is of increasing importance within ageing populations.
This brand new title in the ABC series covers the entire patient journey, from prevention through to long-term support. It includes primary prevention and management of risk factors for stroke and secondary prevention including pharmaceutical, lifestyle and surgical intervention. The general principles of stroke rehabilitation are also addressed as well as mobility, communication and psychological problems, as is stroke in younger people. It also covers long-term support for stroke survivors and their carers.
This is an invaluable and practical guide to all aspects of stroke for both health care professionals and lay audiences. It is of particular relevance to general practitioners, junior doctors, nurses and therapists working with stroke patients and their carers, and to people with stroke and their families.
