Product Description

Australian Publication

This is an excellent handbook, which is most comprehensive and easy to use. It is highly recommended for all resident and registrar staff in paediatric Hospitals and paediatric units. ” – Journal of Paediatric Child Health


This Handbook is a highly popular, succinct guide to managing common and serious disorders in childhood. It 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 Hospital’s Clinical Practice Guidelines and features clear illustrations and diagnostic and management algorithms.
