Das Symptombild des Patienten und der Einfluss prämorbider Faktoren

  • George P. Prigatano

Zusammenfassung

Nachdem wir uns mit dem subjektiven Erleben des Patienten beschättigt haben, besteht der nächste Schritt in der Diagnostik der neuropsychologischen Funktionsstörungen. Sie sollte in einer respektvollen Art und Weise durchgeführt werden und darf den Patienten nicht überfordern. Berücksichtigt werden sollte, was für ein Mensch der Patient vor der Hirnschädigung war und wie er auf die durch die Hirnschädigung hervorgerufenen Störunqen reagiert. In einer entspannten Atmosphäre sollte gemeinsam mit dem Patienten versucht werden herauszufinden, wo die hirnverletzungsbedingten Schwierigkeiten liegen. Darin besteht die „Kunst“ einer erfolgreichen neuropsychologischen Untersuchung.
