This indispensible textbook supports life-long learning throughout
medical and nursing school, into post-graduate training, residency and
fellowships, precepting and community practice; and from there, into research
and advocacy. Authors tackle the most onerous challenges in primary care: How
to actually implement quality developmental-behavioural care in busy clinics.
The books comes with access to a website offering downloadable,
customisable tools for learning and teaching (e.g. observation forms, a
detailed list of milestones, pre-/post-tests for assessing learning), as well
as tools for community practice (e.g. a list of evidence-based screening and
surveillance measures, well-child visit encounter forms embracing health as
well as developmental-behavioural care, two-way consent forms, live links to
services, etc.). The many website offerings facilitate instruction and aid
practising clinicians in complying with American Academy of Pediatrics’ policy
– all within the time constraints of primary care.
Identifying and Addressing
Developmental-Behavioral Problems is a practical and essential handbook for all those interested in
improving the development and well-being of children and their families.
