Overview

One in four GP consultations involves a child under five years of age. This book is designed to provide the practicing GP with all the information needed to deal with common pediatric problems in the community. It provides an overview of current pediatric surveillance checks and a scheme for assessment of sick children in the community. It then goes on to provide detailed coverage of all major pediatric clinical topics. The core text is taken from the successful Oxford Handbook of General Practice, and then edited together to cover the full breadth of pediatrics in one easy to access volume. In addition to the core text, this volume also contains a wealth of "extras" which make all the difference - such as helpful tips, self-help strategies for patients, patient experience information, frequently asked questions and links with quality payments available through the new GMS contract.

This book includes: useful links to further information for patients and GPs; expanded references to help students and GP registrars who need to be aware of the evidence base behind management decisions; flow charts to aid management; explanatory material and diagrams for GPs and nurses to use when explaining a particular condition to a patient; 'Patient experiences' information; FAQs which either take the form of question and answer boxes or 'hot tips boxes' or 'common mistakes boxes'; and each topic is linked to the requirements of the new GP Contract 'Quality and Outcomes Framework'.
