'Management of Brain-Injured Children' describes the epidemiology, assessment, and management of traumatic and non- traumatic brain injuries in children. Throughout, the emphasis is upon providing a multidisciplinary and integrated 'team' approach to understanding these problems. Each chapter has been written by specialists who have regularly worked with brain injured children, providing perspectives from neurologists, psychologists, a Hospital Play Specialist, a Social Worker, Speech and Language Therapist, Headteacher, physiotherapists, and finally, a parent's point of view. The book focuses in detail on the acute medical and nursing needs of the children, the types of problems and difficulties both they and their families encounter, and discusses how the child can be ultimately be returned to the community. Finally, recommendations for the prevention of such injuries are discussed. The book provides a comprehensive, and easily accessible guide for any specialists regularly, or occasionally required to deal with head injuries in children.
