Description - Severe Dementia by Alistair S. Burns

Severe dementia has not been much covered in the clinical literature because until recently, prognosis was very bad and there were few constructive interventions or management tools. This new title provides a state of the art review on the issues of severe dementia, including pathogenesis and neurochemistry. The book describes the changes that occur in dementia in terms of behavioural disturbances, cognitive loss, and neurological signs and focuses on the rich array of treatments and management strategies available for patients with severe dementia. Coverage also includes a consideration of terminal care, ethical issues, advance directives and legal issues.
