Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Terri E Kiernan, MSN, FNP-BC, CCRN, CNRN (Mayo Clinic Arizona)
Description: This is a complete reference on the continuum of care for stroke patients.
Purpose: It is intended to assist clinicians in the care of stroke patients with easy to access, up-to-date information. These are worthy objectives as stroke care is evolving quickly with new research changing the guidelines we use yearly.
Audience: This handbook would be useful for any clinician looking after stroke patients, including neurology residents, stroke fellows, neurologists, and primary care providers.
Features: It covers all aspects of stroke care from anatomy and identification to investigations, secondary stroke prevention, and more. There are great illustrations, tables, and facts to assist clinicians in understanding the concepts. The index is helpful in finding concepts quickly on the go. The only limitation is the U.K. perspective, which sometimes differs from U.S. practice.
Assessment: I found this book useful, quick, and easy to use - and it does fit into a lab jacket pocket unlike many so-called handbooks!
