This book will benefit both those who have access to neuropsychological input and those who do not and will appeal to the more practical needs of practitioners. It bridges the theory-practice gap and can be used by all health team members for effective patient management. As such it provides a grounding in a number of important areas central to both general and specialised nursing care and associated disciplines including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, and speech and language therapy.
