Abstract

Psychological problems in neurology patients are often a combination of physical, social and psychological factors. The nurse should place equal emphasis on each of these areas when assessing, implementing and evaluating care. Nurses should try to understand the nature of the problem and create time to provide emotional support. Particular care must be taken over drug regimens.
