“ ‘What is the use of a book,’ thought Alice, ‘without pictures or conversations?’ ” Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
Paediatric medicine requires an understanding of developing anatomy, physiology and psychology as well as a holistic familyorientated approach. There are a wide range of professional challenges: from the technical aspects of intensive care to the ethical and sociological questions relating to issues of autonomy, independence and children’s rights. The paediatric environment is very different to the world of adult medicine. This can all be daunting to those who are new to the specialty but developing the skills and confidence in successfully managing these challenges can enable professionals to make significant differences to the lives of children and families. This makes paediatric medicine amongst the most rewarding of all the medical specialties.
In preparing the third edition we have updated the text to reflect changes in understanding of childhood illness over the last 5 years. The new edition includes advances in genetics, screening and therapy of childhood illness. Topics have been updated to incorporate UK national guidelines on childhood urinary tract infection, constipation, fever, allergy, diabetes and meningitis.
Children have complex needs which require medical staff to work together with other professionals in child health, psychology, education and social care. There is increasing recognition of the need for all health professionals to have a good understanding of their role in safeguarding vulnerable people. New chapters have been added to expand on psychological issues and ethics in child health. There is greater detail on the recognition, investigation and management of child abuse.
