The Clinical Neuropsychiatry of Stroke : Cognitive, Behavioral and Emotional Disorders following Vascular Brain Injury Paperback / softback
This second edition covers the range of neuropsychiatric syndromes associated with stroke, including cognitive, emotional and behavioural disorders such as depression, anxiety and psychosis.
There is growing recognition among a wide range of clinicians and allied healthcare staff that post-stroke neuropsychiatric syndromes are common and serious.
Such complications can have a negative impact on recovery and even survival; however, there is now evidence suggesting that pre-emptive therapeutic intervention in high-risk patient groups can prevent the initial onset of the conditions.
This opportunity for primary prevention marks a huge advance in the management of this patient population.
