   schema:description "Some of the most important and best lessons in a doctor's career are learnt from mistakes. However, an awareness of the common causes of medical errors and developing positive behaviours can reduce the risk of mistakes and litigation. Written for junior paediatric staff and consultants, and unlike any other paediatric clinical management title available, Avoiding Errors in Paediatrics identifies and explains the most common errors likely to occur in a paediatric setting - so that you won't make them. The first section in this brand new guide discusses the causes of errors in paediatrics. The second and largest section consists of case scenarios and includes expert and legal comment as well as clinical teaching points and strategies to help you engage in safer practice throughout your career. The final section discusses how to deal with complaints and the subsequent potential medico-legal consequences, helping to reduce your anxiety when dealing with the consequences of an error. Invaluable during the Foundation Years, Specialty Training and for Consultants, Avoiding Errors in Paediatrics is the perfect guide to help tackle the professional and emotional challenges of life as a paediatrician. Pre-publication reviews: "I think in Medicine it is always best to learn from others' mistakes rather than waiting until you make your own. In addition, knowing what you can expect if a complaint is made goes some way to emphasising the importance of avoiding errors in the first place. Should a complaint be made, forewarned is forearmed." STI in Paediatrics, "The format of presenting "real life" cases with expert clinical and legal commentary is both entertaining and highly informative." Consultant Paediatrician Book jacket."@en ;
