Book Description

Cognitive screening tests are essential instruments for clinicians working with patients suffering from dementias, brain injury, multiple sclerosis and many other neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders. This authoritative book highlights the importance of early detection, focusing on those cognitive screening tests that can be carried out quickly and yet provide essential information for the assessment, management and treatment of these patients. Explanation is given on how and when these tests should be used and the book also helps to synthesize the vast body of literature available in this area, providing clinicians with essential practical tools for use in their daily practice.
