Are the skills of neurological assessment in need of resuscitation?

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to outline the background to several recent papers which highlight deficiencies in acute neurological care—all of which highlight (to differing degrees) issues in relation to neurological assessment with some proposed solutions. Given that 10% of acute emergency admissions are for neurological conditions (up to 20% if stroke included), this should be of concern to all acute medical physicians.
