Bright Futures, 3rd Edition

Guidelines for Health Supervision of Infants, Children, and Adolescents

Edited by Joseph F. Hagan, Jr., MD, FAAP, Judith S. Shaw, RN, MPH, EdD and Paula M. Duncan, MD, FAAP

The authoritative AAP Guidelines for Health Supervision III you've relied on for years is combined with the practical approach Bright Futures delivers. The result: an updated, highly efficient system to help you provide better health care, save time, and keep up with changes in family, communities, and society that impact child's health. The most current recommendations for the top 10 areas of child development Part I is organized into 10 themes common to all stages of child development, with special emphasis on 2 new significant challenges: mental health and healthy weight. One volume with the most up-to-date well-child supervision standards Part II focuses on specific guidance for each of 31 age-based health care visits. Each visit enumerates 5 priorities for that visit, including sample questions and discussion points for both parent and child.
