There is a continuing need for education about stroke and its management, both in acute and chronic stages. This book aims to facilitate interdisciplinary cooperation, which is essential if rehabilitation programmes are to be optimally effective. Any collaborative enterprise is heavily dependent upon the relationship that develops between the participants. Here a group of health care professionals give their own perspective on the daily problems they encounter and the specific skills involved in dealing with these problems.

Written in an informative and accessible style, this book will help professionals involved in the management of stroke to understand the role of other members of the rehabilitation team, and hence provide coordinated care for the patient.
