This comprehensive and practical guide will be an invaluable aid to students and advanced practitioners, as well as those involved in neonatal and midwifery care in hospitals or community settings.

Lavishly illustrated colour plates and diagrams serve to aid understanding, while the use of diagrams, flowcharts and case studies highlight and guide best practice.

The book includes topics such as history taking, and examination of the skin, head and neck, as well as chromosome, genetic and behavioural concepts.

This second edition includes the latest guidelines from the Nursing and Midwifery Council, as well as national screening guidelines endorsed by the UK National Screening Committee.

The book, which provides readers with a web link that includes interactive questions and a step-by-step guide to the newborn examination, should be available to all front line staff in neonatal and midwifery units.
