This book brings together the best of the neuroscience articles that have been published in the British Journal of Nursing since April 2004. Together they provide an essential reference for nurses working with people with neurological problems in a variety of settings from critical care and tertiary referral centres with specialist neuroscience units, through to stroke services and primary care teams. The book is divided into three sections. The first section focuses on aspects of assessment relevant to neurological patients, the second covers a variety of issues in the management of patients with acute neurological conditions, including some key aspects of neuroscience critical care practice, and the final section focuses on the management of patients with long-term neurological conditions. The aim of this book is to identify key areas of practice and evidence of current best care rather than to provide the definitive neuroscience nursing text. The fact that such a wide range of papers has been published over such a short space of time in one generic nursing journal is testament to the importance of the subject for all practising nurses. With over 10 million people in the UK suffering from a neurological problem one can see the need for nurses everywhere to have access to resources to help them understand and implement appropriate care for these patients.
