It covers development, functional health patterns, and the diagnosis and management of disease. It also offers the experience of a unique author team that combines the perspectives of nurse practitioner educators, practicing nurse practitioners, and a pediatric nurse practitioner working and teaching in community health.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Mary Lou Korpon
This second edition is designed to complement and surpass its predecessor published in 1996. It is nicely divided into sections such as development, health patterns, and disease topics which comprise holistic care. In addition, there are new chapters to deal with timely topics such as complimentary medicine and environmental issues. The purpose is to provide both a handbook for new and experienced nurse practitioners and a textbook for students. Pediatrics is a constantly changing and evolving field. Currently available references must always must always be updated to reflect this. The editors have provided a book that can be used throughout a career. This book is written at an appropriate level and can be used by students and nurse practitioners in practice. The table of contents reveals a comprehensive list of appropriate topics without duplication or significant omissions. The additions included in this edition are needed and current topics of interest. The contributors are all pediatric nurse practitioners and the majority are involved in academia. This qualifies them as experts in this field. Pediatric primary care topics are covered with an emphasis on a holistic approach. For the most part, the illustrations are in black-and-white, with some color photos of commonly seen problems included. If this book is to functin well as a teaching tool, complementary slides of other conditions need to be included. All the chapters, from well child care to disease processes are well done and follow a consistent approach to the subject matter. This is a necessary update to the first edition. In pediatric primary care, there is always a need for updated information. Some otheravailable resources are adequate, but if they are not written by PNPs, the essential components which make nurse practitioners unique are often lacking. I would recommend this book to educators, beginning PNPs, and experienced PNPs.
