This Facts book provides information for the carers of head-injured people. It explains the physical, behavioural, and emotional consequences of head injury, and covers the progress of the patient from the emergency room to home care, and the resumption of a working life. This edition has been updated to reflect changes in medical practice.
The authors, of this book have had many years experience working with head - injured people in both research and rehabilitation roles. The effects of injury are explained in non-technical terms and, where possible, practical ways of overcoming these effects are described. Because they also have many years experience working with organisations formed to help the families of the head-injured, the authors know the main areas of concern that these families have. Beginning with the injury itself, the stages that the patient will go through are described, and the procedures and techniques that will be used to chart progress are explained. As well as these direct effects of the injury on the victim, the book also examines the ways that head trauma can affect families and friends.
