Reviews

"an outstanding resource for clinicians and policymakers. A remarkable achievement of this book is its juxtaposition of the alternative approaches to prevention (in section 2) and clinical guidelines for office-based care (in section 3). Section 2, 'Approaches to Stroke Prevention, ' presents an honest appraisal of community-based strategies and quality improvement efforts." - The New England Journal of Medicine, January 23, 2003 "Provides a road map to guide physicians and other health professionals in ways to overcome barriers to stroke prevention practices." - from the Foreword by Martha N. Hill, R.N., Ph.D., FAAN and Daniel F. Hanley, MD
