Evidence Based Pediatrics and Child Health is a ground-breaking new text on pediatrics and child care management, using evidence based approach. It covers all the major childhood conditions and contains the features of both a handbook and a reference text. Each chapter combines both advice on management and how best to practice evidence based medicine with reviews of all the available evidence in a specific area.
The goal of the book is to help pediatricians and others who care for children to provide the best possible care by combining the best, most current evidence with special circumstances of each individual patient.
