Recent Advances in Paediatrics-29 features an outstanding collection of articles relevant to paediatricians and health professionals working with children and adolescents across the world.

Other topics include prenatal screening and diagnosis of genetic defects, advances in neonatal care, a systematic approach towards orthopaedic management of cerebral palsy, bone health and osteoporosis, as well as advances in surgery and urology.
The text features chapters on “safer care for sick children” with the role of safety checklists and escalation of care using hub and spoke models covered in depth to encourage universal high standards of care.
This book is a compelling read for medical students explaining aspects of paediatrics often not covered in conventional textbooks, and furthermore provides an effective revision tool for DCH and MRCPCH examinations.
