about

This clinical handbook is a valuable resource for any health professional who works with adolescents and young adults, whether in paediatric or adult acute care facilities or in the community. As a handbook it provides ready access to practical, clinically relevant and youth specific information.This clinical handbook fills a clear gap, as most adolescent texts are primarily directed at paediatricians. This handbook extends its scope beyond paediatrics for three important reasons. First, many adolescents are managed by adult trained clinicians who have not had much exposure to or training in adolescent health. Secondly, the important health conditions of adolescents are often the important health conditions in young adults. Thirdly, with increased survival rates in chronic illness over the last two to three decades, it is becoming essential that clinicians in adult health care are able to assess and manage conditions that have their origins in childhood.Each chapter is written by an expert in their field with a highly practical approach. The information is relevant and straightforward, with the aim of enhancing clinical skills.
