In Evidence–based Neurology: Management of Neurological Disorders, expert editors and contributors drawn from the Cochrane Neurological Network, provides specialists and those in training with the skills and knowledge to apply evidence–based practice in the clinical setting.

Fully revised and updated with twelve additional chapters, this second edition covers current developments in the application of evidence–based medicine for neurology with a new approach to methodology. Clinical content is structured according to presentation in clinical practice, with dedicated sections on evidence–based neurology in the hospital and in the clinic

This edition is divided into four sections over 30 chapters, highlighting the different approach to and application of EBM in the hospital, clinic and as telemedicine. The chapters present a brief definition of the clinical condition, together with its incidence and natural history. A clear formulation of a case or question usually follows, structured using the standard three elements of patient, intervention, and outcome with a focus on ensuring the results are as quantitative as possible.

Evidence–based Neurology: Management of Neurological Disorders

  • fills the gap between guidelines and primary studies as well as between primary and secondary scientific medical literature
  • summarizes the most recent and important findings on treatments for neurological patients
  • measures the benefit and, when applicable, the risk of harm inherent in specific neurological interventions
  • now includes new non–clinical topics of interest to neurologists such as education and research

Evidence–Based Neurology is an essential resource for neurologists at any stage of their career wanting to improve their everyday practice.
