This second edition is an invaluable reference that provides information on the rating scales that are commonly used in neurology and clinical neurologic trials. The scales are described in a straightforward and standardized fashion, and cover a variety of neurologic conditions, such as stroke, Parkinson's disease, dementia, multiple sclerosis, etc. Expanding from the first edition new chapters include: generic and general use scales; pediatric neurological and rehabilitation scales; peripheral neuropathy and pain scales; instruments for diagnosing headache; and scales for assessing ataxia. Rating scales are used daily by everyone involved in the management of patients with neurologic disease and in the design and management of neurologic clinical trials. Now there is a single source for the wide range of scales used in specific neurologic diseases and neurorehabilitation. You will refer to this volume constantly!
