Abstract/Extract: The Neurological Resource Centre of South Australia (Inc.) and the Post Polio Support Group of South Australia (Inc.) were given a grant by the Commonwealth Department of Community Services and Health to produce an information book on this subject for members of the Australian health professions. This work resulted in the collection of information which was also suitable for a "consumer" handbook.
It is hoped that this handbook will be of assistance to people who previously had polio and to all those who wish to obtain information on the acute polio infection and how it relates to the late effects of polio.
By reading this booklet, it is hoped that those who previously had polio can understand how to cope with the late effects of polio, whether they already experience symptoms or simply wish to learn about it in order to try to prevent its onset.
Abstract/Extract: It is hoped that this book will be of benefit to all members of the health care professions, who may come into contact with people who require assistance with the management of the late effects of polio.

This review also includes brief accounts of the history of polio, its cause, spread, clinical features, symptoms, treatment and prevention.

It is the intention of the Lincolnshire Post-Polio Network to make all the information we collect available regardless of our views as to it's content. The inclusion of a document in this library should not therefore be in any way interpreted as an endorsement.
People who had polio and are experiencing new symptoms need to be assessed by medical professionals who are experienced in Post-Polio to determine what is wrong and to give correct advice. We can only make these documents available to you. YOU must then take what you believe to be relevant to the medical professional you are seeing. We are collecting and collating everything we can to enable medical professionals to make informed decisions. Other medical conditions must be looked for first, Post-Polio Syndrome is by diagnosis of exclusion.
"Source" in the context of this catalogue primarily means original author. In a few cases it will be an organisation or conference.
