About this title:
Neurology for the Hospitalist is a concise and eminently practical resource for inpatient neurological care. Internal Medicine Hospitalists frequently face patients with neurological issues, and many feel their training in this area was insufficient. Hospitalists are often the primary inpatient care providers for this patient population, as many perceive Neurology to be an Internal Medicine subspecialty. Both new and experienced hospitalists will benefit from this handbook. In addition, medical students and residents will find this to be an excellent at the bedside resource.
The format of the handbook allows one to quickly learn the differential diagnosis, appropriate testing, signs to watch for, and treatment strategies for the most frequently encountered neurologic conditions. Each topic covers commonly asked questions and elements that warrant close attention. Moreover, proposed quality metrics are given for major neurological diagnoses - no other book provides the hospitalist caring for patients with neurological issues the essential elements of that care in such a useable way. The focus is on practical information that will guide the best care.
- Unique categories (eg, 'questions to ask', 'quality metrics')
- Aimed at the bedside provider at all levels
- Practical and concise
- Written by hospitalists and neuro-hospitalists for hospitalists
"This is a superb book for house-staff. It is practical and easy to use to find information - all around, a book well worth the cost." - Doody's Notes
