Overview

In Evidence-based Neurology: Management of Neurological Disorders a carefully selected group of clinically experienced collaborators use the best available evidence to answer more than 100 clinical questions about the treatment and management of neurological disorders.

Divided into three sections and 24 chapters, this book

  • fills the gap between guidelines and primary studies as well as between primary and secondary scientific medical literature
  • summarizes the most recent and important findings on treatments for neurological patients
  • measures the benefit and, when applicable, the risk of harm inherent in specific neurological interventions.

This unique, evidence-based text, edited by members of the Cochrane Neurological Network will be an essential resource for all general neurologists, from the novice to the most experienced, in their everyday clinical practice.
