The Unofficial Guide to Paediatrics is unique in that it is the only textbook that covers core subject summaries, examination practice, practical skills, career opportunities and clinical cases all in one place. It does this through 1000+ colour images and illustrations, 200+ multiple choice questions, and 60+ real life clinical cases to bring paediatrics to life. The contributors range from Professors of Paediatrics, to medical students, to teachers, nurses, and midwives, meaning the book has influences from a truly multidisciplinary team at all stages of training.

Almost every doctor will encounter children in their career; of course, this goes without saying for paediatricians, and in primary care approximately 25% of consultations involve children. Many other specialities encompass paediatric patients including general surgery, ENT and emergency medicine. Therefore, it is vital that all medical students and junior doctors have a core grounding in the fundamentals of paediatrics.

This book is primarily aimed at medical students, covering a wide range of common and important paediatric pathologies (in line with the national Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health undergraduate curriculum). The unique collection of core clinical content, practical skills, clinical cases and examination skills in the book is equally valuable for junior doctors and paediatric trainees. Nurses, advanced nurse practitioners, physician associates and allied healthcare professionals will also find the content and approach useful.

The relevance of this book extends from undergraduate teaching to postgraduate education and as a day-to-day reference for healthcare professionals.
