Children's Medicine and Surgery Summary

Children's Medicine and Surgery by Forrester Cockburn

The knowledge and understanding required for high quality health care provision for children can not be divided into separate compartments labelled community health, psychiatry, medicine or surgery. The good clinician specialising in whatever field must share a common reservoir of knowledge and experience.

'Children's Medicine and Surgery' provides a well balanced and integrated account of what every clinician dealing with childhood disorders should know and be aware of. This account is grounded on wide personal experience of childhood health problems encountered in many different countries, aiming to provide paediatricians throughout the world, both developed and developing, with a source of constant help and support. The book will particularly meet the needs of paediatricians in training, especially those preparing for the Diploma in Child Health, paediatric membership and equivalent examinations.
