The basis of this manual is to collect together the experience and knowledge of a team who have worked in this area for 10 years. It pulls together all areas including how to set up and develop a service as well as useful management strategies. On a practical note it includes complete copies of patient information, assessment proformas, protocols for different interventions, nursing care plans, and an integrated care pathway for outpatient spasticity management both in book and CD format. These protocols are specific to this care team but could easily be adapted for use in other centers. This source should help specialists develop their own service thus improving management for all individuals with spasticity.
