Book review – Are you passionate about paediatrics?
Thursday, April 1st, 2021
Over the last half century, the practice of primary care for children has evolved tremendously. Although paediatrics is a relatively young field compared to other specialties, like a child, it has grown to become an integral part of the heath system. The previous international award-winning third edition, Paediatrics and Child Health is succeeded by the latest edition Essential Paediatrics and Child Health , which includes twenty-six chapters that are covered in a 520-page textbook. This beautifully presented book combines Prof. Mary Rudolf’s four decades of experience as a consultant paediatrician and Professor of Child Health at Leeds University with that of Prof. Anthony Luder and Dr. Kerry Jeavons who both are experts in the field of paediatric medicine.
