Overview

One third of people after stroke, having survived the first few weeks, return home with significant residual disability, and can therefore benefit from an active, multidisciplinary rehabilitation programme. This is a comprehensive guide to rehabilitation after stroke, in which leading international authorities set out the basic neuroscientific principles that underlie brain recovery, including chapters on neural plasticity and neural imaging, and describe appropriate rehabilitation strategies for the many different functional problems that can arise after stroke. These include movement disorders, sensory loss, dysphagia and dysarthria, problems with continence and secual difficulties, and cognitive disorders. Also covered are measurement of disability and quality of life, assistive technology and vocational rehabilitation. It is therefore an essential handbook and reference for all members of the multidisciplinary stroke rehabilitation team, including medical personnel, therapists, clinical neuropsychologists and rehabilitation nurses.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The title might suggest a focus on rehabilitation and treatment, but the contents extend well beyond...the key benefit of the volume is its coalescence of thought and data spanning the disciplines involved in stroke rehabilitation."
Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society

"The bibliography at the end of each chapter is extensive and gives the reader excellent resources from which to draw more detailed information about topics of interest that are summarized in a give chapter...It deals with a broad spectrum of issues related to therapy and would help the reader develop appropriate intervention strategies."
Marie Gage, Revue Canadienne D'ergotherapie
