Previous editions of the Handbook have built its reputation as the definitive guide to using child surveillance to promote the health, welfare and life chances of children. This new edition remains as authoritative as ever, whilst encompassing recent developments in the field, new research and evolving Government policy. It remains the essential child surveillance reference for GPs, general practice trainees, primary care nurses, health visitors, paediatricians and child mental health staff.
