Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Frances Porcher, EdD, RN (Medical University of South Carolina College of Nursing)
Description: This text serves as a reference book for pediatric health professionals who provide comprehensive primary care to children with special healthcare needs. Part I is a focus on the major issues common to providing care to children with special needs. Part II is a focus on the primary healthcare needs for 27 chronic conditions.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide pediatric healthcare professionals with the knowledge necessary to provide comprehensive primary care to children with special healthcare needs. With this book, the editors excel at meeting this objective.
Audience: Nurse practitioners and physicians responsible for providing primary healthcare to children with chronic conditions are targeted. The editors certainly have the academic preparation and experience to author this text, and have utilized many credible professionals as contributors.
Features: This is a comprehensive discussion of primary healthcare content for children with chronic conditions. Chapters are formatted in a similar fashion and include content relative to basic diagnosis and treatment of the specific condition. The major strength is the specific focus in each chapter on the primary care management of the child with the chronic condition, including healthcare maintenance, common illness management, developmental issues, and special family concerns. Two new chapters have been included: Transition to Adulthood, and Autism. Each chapter now includes additional resources and current references. The index is alphabetized and helpful, and there are numerous helpful black-and-white illustrations. Although reasons are given for the exclusion of mental health conditions, it would have been beneficial to include the most common disorders.
Assessment: This text is definitely a worthwhile contribution to the field. The new edition is justified by the inclusion of two more chapters, placing of the resource lists in the relevant chapter, and current reference lists.
Mary Lou Korpon
The second edition of this book continues to addressthe special needs of the chronically ill child while providing andintegrating management of everyday health issues. The purpose of thisbook is to provide primary pediatric healthcare providers with theknowledge to provide comprehensive primary care to those children andfamilies with special needs. This book is directed towards primarypediatric healthcare providers and recognizes the pediatric nursepractitioner as well as the pediatrician. The format is designed tohelp the individual practitioner recognize broad issues common to allchronic conditions as well as primary care issues specific to a varietyof conditions. The overall organization of this book coupled withrelatively current references and an appropriate number ofillustrations make it a usable reference. The inclusion of an appendixthat lists and describes the special interest organizations that areavailable to caregivers, children, and families is a valuableaddition. Any healthcare provider working in a subspecialty wouldagree that this book addressing the primary care of chronically illchildren is a must. The book is organized to reflect common concernsof any chronically ill child as well as addressing special conditions. The chapters which deal with the individual conditions are allorganized in the same way and this provides consistency for the generalpediatric practitioner. Primary care issues are well represented andinclude growth and development, other associated problems and commonillness management. This second edition includes new pertinentinformation and would be a valuable addition to libraries, bookstores,individuals, and educational curriculums.
The first section contains seven chapters on concepts in primary pediatric care. The remaining 26 chapters provide clear and concise descriptions of selected chronic conditions and their assessment and management, for health care providers seeking to understand the particular challenges these children and their families face. Among the conditions discussed are asthma, bleeding disorders, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, cancer, cerebral palsy, epilepsy, hydrocephalus, phenylketonuria, and prenatal cocaine exposure.
