Pediatric Primary Care Case Studies, a collection of pediatric case studies that addresses common health problems of well, acutely ill and chronically ill children, has been published by Jones and Bartlett Publishers, Sudbury, MA.
Author Brian T. Maurer contributed an original chapter on a toddler with language and social delays, in which he reviews the diagnostic criteria and current management of children with autism.
These case studies are designed to help students develop critical thinking and diagnostic reasoning skills as they work through common patient scenarios encountered in general pediatric practice. Guidelines and evidence-based research support current care recommendations.
Maurer was one of three Physician Assistant contributors selected for their expertise and experience in caring for infants, children and adolescents by editors Catherine Burns, Beth Richardson and Margaret Brady.
