Publisher Description

Primary care physicians and nurse practitioners will welcome this ground-breaking guide to the treatment of children with chronic illnesses. The author explores the full range of health, family, and ethical concerns associated with chronically ill children, including nutrition, developmental issues, rehabilitation, mental health, surgical & orthopedic problems, home care, and abuse & neglect.

This is an excellent resource for any clinic or physician that cares for a significant number of children with chronic illnesses. It is well organized and easy to read. Because of the broad approach that covers many complex subjects, it cannot go into much depth in any specific area. It will be necessary for interested readers to follow up with other resources for more in-depth information. The book fills a very important clinical need and provides an excellent resource of organizations and support groups who can help involved families and practitioners. ———Weighted Numerical Score: 81 - 3 Stars
