Stroke Nursing is the leading guide for optimal stroke care, facilitating the provision of evidence-based practice across the stroke journey, and covering the sixteen elements of care outlined in the UK’s Stroke-Specific Education Framework (SSEF).
Drawing from years of clinical and research experience, the authors provide practical guidance on the essential areas of stroke nursing, including stroke classification, stabilisation, thrombolysis and thrombectomy, rehabilitation and recovery, nutrition and oral care, palliative and long-term care, physical impairment management, and more.
Now in its second edition, this indispensable guide helps practitioners expand their knowledge, skills and competence in all areas of stroke nursing services.
As a nursing instructor, I am always looking for good resources for my own learning as well as learning for my students. I take my students to a stroke rehab unit for clinical rotations and therefore when I saw this book, I was very interested in it. This is a very comprehensive text in that it starts off looking at the epidemiology of stroke, cost, policy, management strategies, and research & education, and then takes the reader through the various aspects of stroke as it affects the patient (what a stroke is, risk factors, nutritional aspects, oral care after stroke, communication issues such as aphasia, physical impairments after a stroke, and ends with recovery, rehab, promoting continence, emotional and cognitive changes post stroke, and even looking at supporting the caregivers of someone who has experienced stroke. My favorite part of this book is the abundance of case studies. I find that real life case studies that bring clinical situations to the forefront or for students can bring the clinical into the classroom is a real plus. This book has case studies for each chapter and most chapters have at least two case studies. The book is well researched with an abundance of references for each chapter and their are 14 chapters. If you are looking for a comprehensive resource for stroke, this is an excellent resource.
This is the Ferrari, Maserati and Lamborghini of stroke nursing tomes all rolled into one. There may be other volumes in the field… but there ARE NONE better! Eight stars! And a three star penalty for being offsides = FIVE STARS.
