Summary Lisette Bunting-Perry and Gwyn Vernon have many years of experience working with movement disorders and have edited "Comprehensive Nursing Care for Parkinson's Disease" to supply all the necessary clinical information nurses will need in the care of patients with this complex clinical profile. The topics covered include what is currently known about Parkinson's and the care of its sufferers as well as more advanced care issues such as deep brain stimulation management, palliative care for frail older adults with Parkinson's, medication management, non-motor complications and psychosocial issues, and complementary and alternative approaches. This will be an indispensable bedside companion in caring for those with Parkinson's as well as a much needed catalyst for the evaluation of future patient needs and developing comprehensive models of care.
