Hanley & Belfus, 2002 - Medical - 305 pages
Adolescent Medicine Secrets is aimed at house officers, medical students, and any other clinicians who wish to learn more about providing health care to preteens, teenagers and young adults. It is written in a style that reflects the type of questions that may come up during rounds or in clinical teaching sessions. Physical, cognitive, and emotional growth and development are described, including discussion of some of the psychosocial considerations that have an impact on teen health. A variety of physical disorders which can affect this age group are covered, with special attention given to those disorders unique to adolescents and young adults. In-depth coverage is given to reproductive health and mental health, areas that can be associated with significant morbidity in young people. Throughout, the authors provide useful tips on how to effectively care for this sometimes challenging but ultimately rewarding population.
