Editorial Reviews

Ingrid P. Pearson
This fourth edition continues to provide guidelines in the management of well child care and the management of common pediatric health programs. Previous editions of this book were published in 1994, 1988, and 1982. This book continues to serve as a concise reference for education and practice relative to well-child standards of care, a compilation of common acute illnesses with protocols for diagnosis and management, as well as a drug reference for many commonly used drugs. The book is directed to pediatric primary care providers. It is intended for primary care providers with experience and knowledge in pediatrics and the delivery of well child care, as well as episodic acute care. The overall format is an outline, and is primarily directed to the care of intact families. It does not address the single parent family or issues faced by parents with socioeconomic problems that may have a significant impact on child care. The table of contents is adequate and well organized; however, the appendixes contain significant data and should have been listed individually rather than just as appendixes. This book is a fine reference for pediatric practitioners in practice. The new edition has added three new chapters: injury prevention guidelines; child abuse guidelines; and a section on child abuse. Additional drugs have been added as well as new protocols for management of sinusitis, pertussis, poison ivy/poison oak, and sinusitis. The section on adolescent assessment and care is lacking in content about assessing the adolescent for social, emotional, and environmental issues such as violence and then dealing with these issues when raised. The section on management of common pediatricproblems is well written and easy to follow. The drug section is a valuable quick reference for common drug therapies. The appendixes contain very useful information. This edition would be a valuable addition to individual libraries of students, ambulatory care nurses, and pediatric care providers.
