Elsevier Australia has released an Australian adaptation of the popular US paediatric medical text, Nocton & Gedeit's On Call Paediatrics.
This highly reputable instant reference is aimed at medical students and junior doctors with otherwise limited exposure to paediatric issues.
Nocton & Gedeit's On Call Paediatrics also extremely useful as a structured learning tool or practice book for those on paediatric rotation.
Readers will likely rank the book’s comprehensive nature among its most appealing features. The authors have consolidated an immense list of common paediatric problems – acute and intensive, medical and surgical and even paediatric traumatology – into a single user-friendly guide.
Nocton & Gedeit's On Call Paediatrics offers beginning-to-end advice and support and follows the established format of the ‘On Call’ series, using techniques such as the ‘telephone call’, ‘bedside’ and ‘acute corridor consult’ for effective clinical troubleshooting.
This local edition has been written by three esteemed paediatric medical experts, all of whom practice within Australia. With a wealth of experience between them, the authors offer important advice to medical students and junior doctors on managing work stress and optimising their on-call duties.
