Covering the most important considerations for the general practitioner, the book includes chapters on clinical history taking, a ‘stress-free’ approach to the neurological examination, the most common neurological presentations in general practice, neurological emergencies, and more. It is easy to read, packed with practical hints and tips, and the information is presented using tables and bulleted lists, with accompanying images and videos to illustrate the concepts.
