Pediatric Acute Care: A Guide for Interprofessional Practice is an ideal reference for practice and a resource for training health care professionals who care for pediatric patients in emergency, transport, inpatient, or critical care settings. With contributions from more than 200 practicing clinicians and experts from the US and Canada, it represents a wide-variety of disciplines including medicine, nursing, pharmacy, child life, nutrition, law, oriental medicine, education, public health, and psychology. Each chapter begins with a section on physiology and breaks out into topic subsections outlining pathophysiology, epidemiology and etiology, presentation, differential diagnosis, diagnostic study, therapeutic management, consultation, patient and family education, and disposition and discharge planning. Written with the entire interprofessional team in mind, the authors provide an evidence-based approach to practice exemplifying the depth and diversity necessary for this complex and dynamic health care environment.

  • “This much-needed book on pediatric acute care covers much more than just body systems, encompassing certification, privileging, documentation, coding, and evidence-based practice as well. The best chapters in the book are the ones on child maltreatment and toxicology, and the pediatric MCI triage is particularly helpful. This is a must-have for practitioners who treat children in the acute care setting." - Anna Jarrett, PhD, CNS, ACNP, BC, Washington Regional Medical Center, Doody’s Review Service, Rating: 3 Stars
