Paediatrics Summary

Paediatrics: A Core Text on Child Health, Second Edition by Tony Waterston

In times of rapid change experience is no longer a sufficient guide to practice. Taking the principles of evidence-based medicine this is the first guide to evidence-based management. It will help managers and clinicians to make a difference to their organisation. Illustrated with case studies designed for 'the reader in a hurry' the clear layout of this practical guide is based on a questioning approach of Why? When? Where? How? and Who? which demonstrates how to apply the best evidence in decision making and in assessing performance. Obstacles to practising evidence-based management in healthcare are described with explanations of how to overcome them. Health managers and clinicians with managerial responsibilities will find this book an essential guide. Leaders in health service organisations public health doctors and public sector managers will find it of great benefit in their work.

Paediatrics Reviews

"This book provides a useful basis from which to view new perspectives in paediatrics, coupled with its more traditional underpinnings including holistic care for the child and family and teamwork to provide that care. It will be a valuable learning tool and reference point for the many professionals engaged in paediatric work, including nurses, midwives, health visitors, doctors, physiotherapists and social workers.' Jane Naish, in her Foreword 'If this is your first paediatrics textbook, you will find that it offers an admirable balance between many different perspectives of the problems and healthcare needs of children and young people. It shows how each illness has physical, psychological and social dimension - good paediatrics requires that all three be addressed and none be neglected. If you are already experienced in paediatrics, this book will give an excellent refresher course on topics in which you may have become just a little out of date (it does happen occasionally), and will be a valuable aid to planning a balanced curriculum for students.' David Hall, in his Foreword"
