Weighing restricted budgets against quality of care and treatment success against risks can often prove daunting, particularly when adequate information relating to previous treatment outcomes is hard to find. To facilitate informed decisions, this volume provides both a succinct review and expert advice on the available outcome data relating to most conditions met in neurological practice.Table of Contents ContributorsPrefacePart I.
