Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Modena H. Wilson, MD, MPH (Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine)
Description: This is the third edition of a practical book for practitioners and students of pediatric primary care. The editors and many of the chapter authors are from the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide guidance for the provision of primary care to infants, children, and adolescents. The chapters are collected into sections that include an age-related approach to well-child care, assessing common and important signs and symptoms, overviews of illness or injury by organ system or etiology, treatments of developmental disabilities and behavioral problems, and communicating with parents and patients.
Audience: Busy experienced practitioners will find this book an accessible review and update and a quick reference for validating approaches to unfamiliar problems. New practitioners will find it a good source for filling in gaps in their knowledge or experience during day-to-day practice. Students will find it a practical overview of the field of pediatric primary care.
Features: Particularly useful are the numerous tables and figures, especially the decision-making algorithms, and the explicit guidance on consultation and referral. The references are applicable but sparse, probably deliberately so in an effort to keep the book of manageable size. It should not be considered a criticism of this book to say that its readers will at times need to refer to a more encyclopedic source for depth.
Assessment: This revised edition of a practical and basic text of pediatric primary care is a readable guide of manageable length for students. Its problem-oriented approach, algorithms and tables, and guidance on referrals and consultations make it a good quick reference for the busy practitioner. It should be particularly attractive in the teaching practice.
