This comprehensive and established textbook presents an up-to-date overview of all aspects of managing children with cancer and in its third edition has been completely revised and updated to reflect recent developments in the field. Individual malignancies are given comprehensive coverage, including details of clinical presentation, diagnostic investigations, novel imaging techniques and current management with chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery.
Current controversies relating to diagnosis and management – a popular feature of previous editions – are presented in boxes for increased emphasis. Content changes to the new edition include a restructured pathology section and new chapters under separate headings of ‘advances in therapy’ and ‘late effects and supportive care’.
Retaining a European flavour, but incorporating information from American and other national studies to give an objective and comprehensive overview, the third edition of Paediatric Oncology remains invaluable reading for trainee and practising paediatric oncologists, and nurse specialists, world-wide.
[contributors mainly UK and European, plus 1 from US and 1 from Australia]

Imaging Practice and Radiation Protection in Pediatric Radiology: Conventional Radiography

 Pediatrics, Radiology  Comments Off on Imaging Practice and Radiation Protection in Pediatric Radiology: Conventional Radiography
Dec 282019
 

This book offers the reader sound advice on how to perform optimal conventional pediatric radiographs and how to obtain quick and easy organ dose estimates in order to improve the optimization process in pediatric imaging. Clear guidelines are provided for minimization of the radiation exposure of children through optimization of the radiation exposure conditions, and conversion coefficients are presented for calculation of the organ doses achieved in organs and tissues during conventional pediatric radiography, taking into consideration both optimal and suboptimal radiation field settings. Previously published conversion coefficients have failed to represent the variation in radiation field settings in daily clinical routine, which has made it difficult for the pediatric radiologist to estimate the impact of the field settings on absorbed doses in organs and tissues. The aim of this book, co-written by a pediatric radiologist, a physician and physicist, and a medical radiation technologist, is to address this issue by providing, for the first time, a thorough overview of clinical radiation field settings and their implications for radiation protection. An accompanying volume is devoted to fluoroscopy.

One of the best pre-Board exam reviews. This series is so intense that it could not be abbreviated more, and needs to be read more than once. It was a great experience for me in preparing for the Pediatric Board. Highly recommended. (from reader reveiw)

Paediatric Surgery, 2nd edition

 Pediatrics, Surgery  Comments Off on Paediatric Surgery, 2nd edition
Dec 152019
 

The second edition of Paediatric Surgery has been designed to be highly relevant to the practice of clinical paediatric surgery. With this in mind, topics are presented in a clear and easily digestible format, with the most important learning points in each area clearly identified. The principles of the basic sciences, and how these relate to competent clinical practice, are covered in each clinical chapter, and are an important part of the Intercollegiate Board examination and other higher examinations in paediatric surgery in Europe and Australia.While many of the topics from the previous edition have been retained and updated as appropriate, there are a number of important additions. The important and developing field of minimally invasive surgery has been given more prominence. Oncology has been expanded to include more detail on solid tumors as well as more on central venous access and the surgical assessment of the acutely unwell child undergoing chemotherapy. Thoracic surgery has been expanded to include the management of empyema and the open and endoscopic approach to resection and biopsy. Finally, important ‘generic’ issues such as communication skills, the critical analysis of journal articles and evidence-based medicine have all been introduced.The second edition of Paediatric Surgery will be an invaluable resource for all trainee paediatric surgeons, providing a summary of practical, evidence-based advice for the candidate for the Intercollegiate Board Specialty Examination in Paediatric Surgery (FRCS Paeds), or other equivalent examination, with overwhelming and unnecessary detail.

Transition from Pediatric to Adult Healthcare Services for Adolescents and Young Adults with Long-term Conditions: An In

 Pediatrics  Comments Off on Transition from Pediatric to Adult Healthcare Services for Adolescents and Young Adults with Long-term Conditions: An In
Dec 152019
 

This book offers essential information on interventions and actions that enable and promote transition experiences for adolescents and young adults. It provides guidance on appropriate strategies that bring together these groups and caregivers in the context of transition preparation, and those which optimize adolescents’ and young adults’ ability to self-manage their healthcare.
The health care transition for adolescents and young adults has gained more attention given the improved survival rates, including for those with long-term conditions. It is now estimated that more than 90% of children diagnosed with a long-term condition will survive into adulthood. The significant change in survival requires concomitant services to facilitate adolescents’ and young adults’ successful transition to adult health care, therefore providers need education, knowledge and skills to support healthcare transition services. A recent US national survey demonstrated only 10% of parents/caregivers reported that their children received transition preparation services.
This book is targeted at nurses and pediatric and adult health care providers of different disciplines seeking guidance on which interventions are available, how they can be used, advantages and challenges, and how best to promote a seamless transition for all adolescents and young adults with long-term conditions. It provides several examples of transition programmes and initiatives worldwide. There is an increasing focus on how nurses can support transition but little guidance on what is effective and what has been tried. This book will fill a gap by addressing all of these issues outlined above and by providing worked examples from leading nurse researchers and academics worldwide.
