Learn everything you can about pediatric primary care! The 7th edition of Burns' Pediatric Primary Care addresses all of the common medical issues encountered in primary care for children, with an emphasis on both prevention and treatment. This comprehensive textbook is the only one available written from the perspective of the Nurse Practitioner, and it is based on solid scientific facts. From infancy to puberty, it provides clear instructions for diagnosing, treating, and avoiding health issues in children. Developmental theory, everyday challenges, the state of children's health in the modern world, and cultural sensitivity are all central themes. All of the information has been revised to incorporate the most recent findings in the field as well as national and international procedures and standardized recommendations. There are nine new chapters, updated sections on health promotion, health protection, disease management, and much more in this updated and expanded seventh version.
