Lecture Overview

Performing a basic neurological assessment is a cornerstone of nursing practice. However, have you considered lately how you would assess for the presence or absence of a haematoma as a result of a fall? This critical component should also form part of your neurological assessment - especially in older adults where falls are more injurious. Join Sue De Muelenaere for this back-to-basics reminder on how to perform a comprehensive neurological assessment, relevant to the older adult.
