An invaluable neurological guide for primary care physicians
Neurology for General Practitioners is written specifically for general practitioners (GPs) - typically the first point of contact for patients suffering neurological conditions.
Written by neurologist and academic, Roy Beran, Neurology for General Practitioners assists in the diagnosis of neurological disorders such as epilepsy, stroke and Parkinsons disease. It also addresses the majority of common disorders encountered in general practice.
As well as being an excellent diagnostic resource, Neurology for General Practitioners will prove a helpful tool for doctors looking to refer patients for consultant opinion and manage ongoing complications at a primary care level.Chapters in this compact guide are structured around clinical management - including history, examination, investigation and treatment - and backed by clinical examples and explanations.
As general practitioners are usually the first to see the early signs and symptoms of neurological disorders, this clinical practice handbook will be of enormous benefit to primary health care physicians, family physicians, rural doctors and isolated practitioners alike. This must-have medical text is also ideal for neurology trainees.
