'Ambulatory care', the provision of health services on a day service basis, is a growth area. Nowhere is this more evident than in paediatrics where minimising the disruption to the lives of children caused by illness and hospitalisation has been high on the agenda for consumer groups and service providers for two decades. This book brings together details of some innovations in paediatric ambulatory care, presenting them in a form that is readable, research-based and relevant to practice.
