About the Authors
  • Originally published as Preventative Management of Children with Congenital Anomalies and Syndromes, this new edition provides health professionals with an invaluable, structured approach to the preventive care of children with congenital disorders. Over 150 conditions ranging from cerebral palsy to Down syndrome are discussed. The large number of conditions covered and the added perspective of a developmental pediatrician (Dr Cooley) provides a valuable resource for carers and parents. For each disorder there is an introductory summary of key information, followed by more detailed listing of general pediatric and speciality concerns, all structured to provide an integrated approach to patient care. For 32 common disorders or disease categories, preventive management checklists are provided: these checklists provide an ongoing record for the child's medical complications and progress and they are designed to be copied and placed in the medical record. The text provides details of medical complications and preventive recommendations supported by key literature and web resources for parents and professionals.

    • A compendium of clinical guidance and checklists to provide a structured approach to care for these children
    • Emphasis on preventive management of medical complications
    • Supported by key literature and web resources, suitable for professionals and parents
