With easy-to-follow flow charts and photographs, colour-coded chapters and over 70 health issues, Do I Need to See the Doctor offers Canadian parents the very best kind of support: peace of mind. Late-night fever? Sudden ear ache? Just flip open the book and follow the coloured flow charts. Parents will find a detailed,
at-home care guide, as well as medical doctors’ advice on when to be treated by a professional. Now you can rest assured that you know the very best ways to take care of your family’s health needs, as well as exactly when to get help from a doctor or medical professional.
Better yet, because you have followed the same step-by-step treatment plan that doctors use, your arrival at the hospital or doctor’s office is always warranted. This means fewer trips to the doctor, shorter wait times at the hospital, as well as professional guidance for you at home – this book truly is a must-have for every Canadian home, summer camp, school and cottage.
Inside, you will find at-home treatments for your entire family, through every age and stage:
