A highly popular, succinct guide to managing common and serious disorders in childhood
This book is used far beyond the hospital by medical, nursing, and allied health professionals caring for children. It emphasizes the community-based approach to the management of children's problems along with clinical management by the doctor of first contact. This new 8th edition has been updated in line with the Royal Children's Hospital's Clinical Practice Guidelines and features clear illustrations and diagnostic and management algorithms.
Besides being a clinical management guide to paediatrics, this is also an excellent supplemental handbook for students, junior medical staff and any medical practitioners needing a tool to enable fast decisions at point of care.
