Clinical Skills in Child Health Practice

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States.

Each skill is presented with the evidence base required to ensure up-to-date safe practice. Chapters provide rationale for each step of the skill and are enhanced by diagrams and photographs to give the practitioner clear guidance and the confidence to perform unfamiliar skills. The accompanying PowerPoint presentations are a resource for both lecturers teaching clinical skills and individual students who are either encountering a skill for the first time or want to update their knowledge.
