The Compendium is a series of seven books designed to serve as a resource in constructing an appropriate plan of care for individuals and their families experiencing these diseases. These modules examine the incidence of each disease process, the pathophysiology of the illness, appropriate assessment techniques and treatments as the disease progresses. The modules further define the psycho-social implications. The modules specifically question the potential ethical, economic and research implications as related to each specific disease process.
Neurological disorders represent a diverse set of illnesses, with very different etiologies, symptoms, and treatments. Each can present challenges to the individual experiencing them and to their families. The long-term consequences of these disorders can be devastating to the quality of life for patient and family. These disorders include amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, and multiple sclerosis, cerebrovascular accidents, traumatic brain injury, and new in the second edition – Guilllain-Barré and myasthenia gravis. Given the serious and life-threatening nature of these illnesses and the many resultant physical and psychological symptoms, patients with these disorders benefit from expert palliative care.
