'Pauline Pope has been a true champion and advocate for patients who would previously have<br>been considered 'beyond help'. Her book bears witness to the achievement of impossibility in<br>this context. It is essential reading for all professionals involved with the care of people with<br>long-term neurological conditions.' Lynne Turner-Stokes DM FRCP, Northwick Park Hospital<br>and King's College, London. <p>"Aimed at therapists, nurses, doctors and carers, this book provides <br>essential information on all aspects of care for patients with severe and <br>complex neuro-disability. Pauline Pope provides an understanding of how and <br>why structures of the body may be compromised for these patients, and also <br>of the many secondary complications that can occur. Through this <br>understanding, the book deals with appropriate management for such patients, <br>maximising remaining functional ability and minimising secondary <br>complications." <br>"It is a very comprehensive read, providing a sound reference for all <br>professionals and carers involved in the care of patients with sever and <br>complex neuro-disability." <br>Kate Turner, Nuffield Orthopaedic Centre, Oxford.
