Lecture Overview

A lecturer once told Renee Di Giuseppe not to automatically assume someone is drunk if they are stumbling down the street; for they could quite possibly be having a hypoglycaemic attack... Since then, the four factors that can cause an altered state of consciousness have stayed with her: sugars, sedation, seizures, and stroke. Join Renee for this easy-to-understand refresher on how to conduct a comprehensive neurological assessment - a cornerstone of clinical nursing practice.

Lecturer needs to be more confident and less hesitant in what she says.

Not all that valuable. Presenter language was very basic and not at nursing education level
