assessment of the neurological system

week, we will focus on the assessment of the neurological system. The nervous system is a complex system that must stay in balance to enable the client to perform all functions of activities of daily living, remain in optimum physiologic functioning, and maintain independence.

  • Differentiate normal from abnormal findings in the assessment of the system. (CO 1)
  • Identify anatomical, developmental, psychosocial, and cultural variations that guide assessment of the neurological system. (CO 2)
