"With their easy access to all current pediatric practice guidelines and policies, this manual is an indispensable additions to any pediatric library. Pediatric practitioners and managers at all levels will refer often to the manual to ensure that their practice keeps up to date with the latest patient care recommendations from AAP."
-- Lois Gesn, MD (Ochsner Health Center - Baton Rouge) Doody's Review - previous edition
Pediatric practitioners looking for guidance on managing common conditions in their patients are the intended audience. Readers are reminded that the guidelines reflect known positive outcomes from evidence-based care, but are not intended as the standard of care. Management-level personnel will find the book useful for establishing quality-proven policies for hospital or clinic-based pediatric practices.
