This book comprehensively covers core topics within paediatrics in a clear and accessible format. The first edition (OUP, ISBN 019262563) was established as a standard undergraduate paediatric textbook, designed around a problem-based approach. It integrates both acute and community based aspects of child health. Undergraduate medical students and paediatric trainees will find this book invaluable, as will general practitioners, nurses and other professionals allied to medicine. 'This book provides a useful basis from which to view new perspectives in paediatrics, coupled with its more traditional underpinnings including holistic care for the child and family, and teamwork to provide that care. It will be a valuable learning tool and reference point for the many professionals engaged in paediatric work, including nurses, midwives, health visitors, doctors, physiotherapists and social workers.' Jane Naish, in her Foreword If this is your first paediatrics textbook, you will find that it offers an admirable balance between many different perspectives of the problems and healthcare needs of children and young people. It shows how each illness has physical, psychological and social dimensions - good paediatrics requires that all three be addressed and none be neglected. If you are already experienced in paediatrics, this book will give an excellent refresher course on topics in which you may have become just a little out of date (it does happen occasionally), and will be a valuable aid to planning a balanced curriculum for students.' David Hall, in his ForewordThis book comprehensively covers core topics within paediatrics in a clear and accessible format.
