Paediatrics Lecture Notes provides the information central to a thorough understanding of the care of children in clinical practice, drawing out key concepts in areas such as examination, communication and emergency paediatrics, in addition to systematically structured clinical topics.

Incorporating brand new and updated material to reflect advances in various areas of child and adolescent health, such as genetics, behavioural and emotional problems and seizures, this edition is also ideal for exam preparation.

Key learning features include:
• Ready-made revision lists, OSCE stations and practice EMQs
• New ‘icon’ system highlighting essential clinical topics throughout
• Helpful key points and treatment boxes in every chapter
• A new ‘Symptom Sorter’, available at, to help quickly determine which conditions should feature in your differential diagnoses

An ideal resource for those encountering this area of study for the first time, on paediatric rotation, or needing to refresh their knowledge, Paediatrics Lecture Notes presents the vital information in one accessible and user friendly volume.
