A Practical Manual
editore: Oxford University Press
Multiple Sclerosis Care - A Practical Manual is a concise and easy to use reference source for all aspects of care in the management and understanding of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). It is useful for all health professionals involved in the care of people with MS, including hospital doctors and GPs, therapists and social workers. It takes account of the latest scientific evidence and guidelines in the management of MS, and takes a practical and pragmatic approach to the evaluation of controversial aspects of MS care. The book is divided into five sections, beginning with background information on MS history. The second section concentrates on the diagnosis of MS, while the third deals with ongoing management of the condition. Part four provides practical advice on auditing and service evaluation, and finally, the book lists additional resources, websites, charities and other useful information. Each aspect of MS is easy to access, with simple line diagrams and tables, as well as examples of investigations, including MR scans. The book offers handy, easy to use information for practical and scientific information about MS.
The handbook has been written by a neurologist, physiotherapist and specialist nurse, all leaders in their field, who are all involved in both MS research and active service delivery to people affected by the disease.
