Part of the Critical Issues in Neuropsychology book series (CINP)


In France a good system exists for the early care of head injuries, thanks to an efficient emergency ambulance service created 20 years ago and a network of neurosurgical departments to receive patients. The rehabilitation and long-term care of such patients has lagged behind developments in some other countries. Few specialized units for head injury patients exist, particularly to assure their follow-up and to facilitate home return (social outcome) and work return.
