Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Muthukrishnan Sriranjini, MD (University of Illinois at Chicago College of Medicine)
Description: This is a very good book in which the author provides clear understanding of the comprehensive care, including the continuity of care, needed for the management of patients with chronic neurologic illness.
Purpose: The purpose is to emphasize the basic principles of quality medical care and their application to a variety of neurologic illness, with special focus on the need for more comprehensive care dealing not only with the disease but also the person and the setting in which he/she lives, in order to reduce the degree of disability and improve the quality of life. This goal has been achieved by the author.
Audience: This book is of great value to all physicians who work with persons with chronic neurologic problems.
Features: This book differs from others in that the author provides case examples in each chapter. Readers get a better understanding of the needs of the patient and the role of the patient and family as the primary participant in the planning and treatment process with these examples.
Assessment: This is an excellent reference, especially for neurologists and physiatrists.
