About the Authors
  • In the clinical neurosciences, decision-making becomes ever more complicated because of rapidly emerging new diagnostic tests and treatments and increasing demands from patients to participate in their management. This concise but wide-ranging handbook reviews the epidemiology of neurological disease and the treatment and prognosis of all major diseases of the nervous system. Part one offers essential guidance for clinicians to quantitative methods in research, including genetic epidemiology, decision analysis, meta-analysis, outcomes research and survival analysis, and thus provides a good understanding of the evidence underlying clinical management. The second part is devoted to individual neurological diseases, covering etiology, diagnosis, prognosis, interventions, and implications for clinical practice. With contributions from leading international authorities, this book is an invaluable guide to clinical decision-making for neurologists and others involved in the management of neurological disease.

    • A concise review of clinical epidemiology and management of neurological disease
    • Provides a solid foundation for evidence-based practice
    • An authoritative guide to decision-making in clinical neurology

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The book provides a novel approach to neurological thinking and the subtitle indicates a refreshing population-based approach to some of the difficult issues.' Doctors.net

    'While this book is predominantly aimed at neurologists with an interest in epidemiology, it also serves as a useful overview of neurological diseases for clinicians or surgeons who may also be involved in the care of neurological patients. In particular, the first section of the book is a useful introductory guide for any clinician embarking on an epidemiological study and should be recommended reading.' British Journal of Neurosurgery
