This book is a unique source of practical information for frontline providers of care for stroke patients. It focuses on patient management—from stroke prevention through acute stroke management, through chronic care—and offers how-to guidance on implementing diagnostic and treatment protocols.
Each chapter includes a bulleted list of key learning points; an evidence-based rationale for why the diagnostic and treatment recommendations work; a step-by-step approach to clinical application; practical recommendations from the authors; a critical pathway; and a bibliography. An entire chapter focuses on building a stroke team. Appendices include reproducible samples of order sets and a list of important medications.
