Abstract

"Neurological Assessment" is a quick reference tool for identifying those all important links to pathology and physiology - crucial for efficient clinical reasoning and ultimately better patient care. Tabulated and coded neuroanatomy and assessment sections ensure clear navigable links from the problem definition (pathology) to relevant assessment information. For each clinical assessment tool there is a description of what the procedure is assessing, why it needs to be assessed and finally a step by step guide to how the assessment is carried out. All sections give detailed reasoning on any possible findings from the assessment technique and an example of how to record the procedure, encouraging the clinician to reflect on the technique carried out and to consider the overall impression from the patient, so facilitating the process of clinical reasoning. Part of the "Physiotherapist's Toolbox Series" - unlock your key skills! This is perfect for use on placement and in the clinic.
