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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I purchased this book as I am a newly qualified nurse and I have just started my first job on a neurosurgery ward. I have found the book really useful for quick reference and it provides an overview of most of the things I have come into contact with so far. This is worth the money and I would recommend it to all neuro nurses! * Ellie Thomas, Amazon Review *
I'm a nurse and coming from a medical ward to a neurosurgical ward was extremely difficult. I have looked at a few books which were more complex and mostly aimed at doctors. This book is excellent and covers all the areas that I need for neurosurgical nursing. I would definitely recommend for starting out in any neuro ward. It covers all aspects of neurological disease, injury & rehab. Exactly what I wanted. * Amazon Customer Reviews *
Good concise book for neuroscience nurses. Not too bulky and very easy to understand. Worth buying if you are going to work in a neuroscience ward. * Amazon Customer Reviews *
