Overview

First Prize in the Paediatrics category at the British Medical Association Book Awards 2009

Rehearse for life in clinical practice with this easy-to-use and unique series, which combines cases drawn from real-life experiences with a refreshing approach to presentations as you would see them in day-to-day situations.

Get the most from clinical practice, with Clinical Cases Uncovered

Guiding you through paediatrics, Clinical Cases Uncovered presents real-life problems which you can work through and improve on time and again. Each case looks at a different child, from premature infant to teenager, with acute or long-term problems. Presentations reflect common primary care and hospital-based practice and will give you a detailed insight into how children with a wide variety of problems can be assessed and managed.

The first section covers essential paediatric basics, then looks at common disorders and useful pointers. There is a section on practical assessment of children, helping you adapt your skills for the age of the child and the presenting problem. The helpful self-assessment section then lets you test all you have learnt and makes for great revision.
