Preface Excerpt:

Pediatric Primary Care: Well-Child Care will concentrate on health maintenance supervision, the foundation of pediatric primary care, and on behavioral and developmental pediatrics, integral components in the provision of well-child care. Several new chapters cover newborn screening, the sports physical, the adolescent visit, and injury prevention. Additional chapters address and expand on age-specific well-child visits. Furthermore, the behavioral and developmental section, significantly expanded [from the precursor Handbook of Pediatric Primary Care], covers common negative behaviors that a primary care provider should be able to help parents manage, as well as a chapter on child sexuality.

Discussions...include the approach to the developmentally delayed child, school issues, and attention deficity hyperactivity disorder....telephone medicine, medical informatics...I hope this handbook finds a special place in pediatric and family medicine continuity clinics, now such an important part of the training of primary care physicians in this new age of ambulatory medicine...
Raymond C. Baker, M.D.
