This illustrated text presents the reader with an overview of the best-practice management protocols for acute stroke, as practiced by a major medical center. For senior staff the book describes key considerations in establishing and running an acute stroke facility on an on-going basis, and for other members of the care team, how their role within that service can be performed most effectively.

Covering clinical and administrative procedures, the text is intended to provide all members of the team with an accessible guide to patient management, encompassing initial presentation, rapid response and emergency interventions, through to hospital-based procedures and neuro-critical care. Additional chapters review the latest thinking on rehabilitation and recovery.

The objective is to provide readers with a reference that will enable them to establish or manage more efficiently, a facility of their own, or to participate more effectively as part of a multi-disciplinary care team.
