ELSEVIER Australia has published Neurology for General Practitioners – a compact but expansive clinical practice handbook by acclaimed neurologist and academic, Professor Ron Beran.

General Practitioners (GPs) are typically the first to see patients with the early signs and symptoms of neurological disorders such as epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease or stroke, and are subsequently the first to diagnose or refer them. A neurology text written expressly for GPs is therefore likely to be of enormous benefit.

Neurology for General Practitioners is structured around clinical management with chapters addressing history, examination, investigation and treatment. All content is backed by clinical examples and explanations.

The textbook also addresses the majority of common disorders encountered in general practice and features a wealth of information to assist in the management of ongoing complications at a primary care level.

Neurology for General Practitioners is a useful, highly-anticipated guide for primary health care physicians and family physicians. It is equally ideal for practitioners in rural or isolated areas, along with neurology trainees.
