Pressestimmen""This is a quick reference guide for clinicians on the management of various medical problems in individuals with neurological disabilities. The book surveys various medical symptoms and conditions that such patients are likely to encounter. Common medical problems that practitioners are most likely to see are covered, such as fatigue and nutrition. However, less often discussed and less frequently occurring issues are also presented, such as dental care and obstetrics and gynecology problems. The chapters are easy, quick reads with easy to follow tables and hints for practitioners...This is a good resource, given the paucity of practical books on this topic, for a variety of healthcare professionals."" - Doody, Joseph I.
