List Price: 74.99
Available: August 2014
The Association of Child Neurology Nurses has developed a collection of Child Neurology Encounter Guides for common neurology conditions. The topics include epilepsy, alteration of consciousness, paroxysmal involuntary movements, headache, post-concussion, tic disorders, developmental delay, and intellectual disability. The guides easily lead registered nurses, doctors of nursing practice, nurse practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, physician assistants, rotating medical students, and residents through an in-person or electronic child neurology encounter. This three-part toolkit— with educational topic overviews, quick reference pocket guides, and data collection tools—is ideal for educational training, protocol development, and quality management. Whether implemented in a private, managed care, or tertiary-level practice, the Child Neurology Encounter Guides can enhance patient evaluation and management efficiency, maximize the child neurology provider’s time, and provide patients with access to “real-time” health care interventions.
