About the Centre

Library Services

The Neuro-​Patient Resource Cen­tre is located in Room 354 of the Mon­treal Neu­ro­log­i­cal Hos­pi­tal. We have an excel­lent col­lec­tion of books on neu­ro­log­i­cal and neu­ro­sur­gi­cal prob­lems writ­ten in easy to under­stand lan­guage. We lend these books to MUHC patients and their fam­i­lies. Two items may be bor­rowed at a time. We also have pam­phlets and arti­cles on neu­ro­log­i­cal prob­lems includ­ing rare dis­or­ders of the ner­vous sys­tem. (Learn more about our loans policy.)

The Cen­tre has com­put­ers with inter­net and email access for the use of Mon­treal Neu­ro­log­i­cal Hos­pi­tal patients and their fam­i­lies. If you want assis­tance the med­ical librar­ian or one of our vol­un­teers will help you.

Patient Edu­ca­tion Mate­ri­als development

The Cen­tre works with Mon­treal Neu­ro­log­i­cal Hos­pi­tal staff in the devel­op­ment of patient edu­ca­tion materials.

Inter­net

By using our Health Infor­ma­tion and Patient Infor­ma­tion data­base you can get infor­ma­tion on neu­ro­log­i­cal dis­eases and their diag­nos­tic tests and treat­ments either by using our A-​Z list or by enter­ing key­words in the search box. You will find def­i­n­i­tions, hos­pi­tal pro­duced doc­u­ments, com­mu­nity resources, links to good qual­ity resources on the inter­net and a list of books avail­able at the Neuro-​Patient Resource Centre.
