9th Edition of the RCH Paediatric Handbook


Editors of the latest edition of Wiley’s best selling manual The Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne Paediatric Handbook 9th Edition include Melbourne Paediatric Specialists Paediatricians Amanda Gwee and Michael Marks.

The Paediatric Handbook 9th Edition is an authoritative and trusted management guide for paediatric clinicians throughout Australia.

A succinct and practical guide to managing common and serious disorders in childhood, relevant to medical, nursing and allied health fields, this is both a useful source for revision and an essential guide to clinical management and rapid decision-making at the point of care.

For this edition, the handbook has been restructured according to body systems and is now more closely aligned with the Royal Children’s Hospital Clinical Practice Guidelines.  It also includes updated evidence-based information in all chapters, an additional genetics chapter, new renal and oncology chapters and fully updated drug doses.

The Handbook includes:

  • Clear illustrations, and plenty of accessible diagnostic and management algorithms
  • A Paediatric Pharmacopoeia
  • Step-by-step guidelines for paediatric procedures
  • Emphasis on the modern, community-based approach to the management of children’s problems
  • A strong emphasis on practical management by the doctor at first contact

With well-presented, summarized information that you can easily access during a consultation, this text is also an excellent supplemental handbook for students, junior medical staff and medical practitioners.

Along with Editors, Amanda Gwee and Michael Marks, contributing authors to the Paediatric Handbook 9th Edition also include the following practitioners currently consulting at Melbourne Paediatric Specialists:
John Massie, Sarah McNab, Sonia Grover and Nigel Curtis.
