Review quote

The seventh edition of the Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne Paediatric Handbook is a well written, concise but comprehensive work which covers acute paediatrics, pain management, procedures in paediatrics and all of the speciality areas of paediatric medicine and surgery. It is a very practical handbook and the format of this edition further assists with the readability and access to important information. Overall, this is an excellent handbook, which is most comprehensive and easy to use. It is highly recommended for all resident and registrar staff in paediatric hospitals and paediatric units.
