Book review: Great Ormond Street Handbook of Paediatrics

Illustrative guide aimed at all healthcare professionals caring for children and young people
Great Ormond Street Handbook

Great Ormond Street Handbook of Paediatrics (second edition) Stephan Strobel, Lewis Spitz and Stephen D Marks CRC Press £63.99 | 736pp ISBN: 9781482222791

This second edition textbook, written by professors and consultants in the field of paediatrics from Great Ormond Street Hospital, aims to provide healthcare professionals with insight into conditions prevalent in children and young people.

Each condition is explained, its prognosis discussed, and treatment plans covered and supported by photographs and illustrations.

The publication does not have a purely nursing focus; rather it is aimed at general practitioners, medical students, community and general paediatricians. The content is detailed in places, which for some nurses and medical students may be overwhelming, and therefore risk losing their interest.
