Zeshan Qureshi is a Paediatrician based at Great Ormond Street and the Institute of Child Health. He graduated with distinction from the University of Southampton, and has published and presented research work extensively and internationally in the fields of pharmacology and medical education. Whilst working in Edinburgh he was part of the leadership team developing a near peer teaching programme, where by junior doctors, throughout south east scotland, were both trained to teach, and delivered teaching across every hospital in the area. This book is an extension of this philosophy: that junior doctors and fresh graduates know how to express complex ideas in order for it to be easily understood from a students perspective. That junior doctors can teach, and write in a complimentary way to senior doctors: one that is friendly and fun, easy to read and relevant to both exams, and the day to day to life of junior doctors.
In the wonderful world of paediatrics, this is a wonderful resource for students, junior doctors, and paediatric trainees alike - or anyone looking for a simple and reliable complement to learning from the literature and clinical encounter. The development and success of this has been no child's play - one might even say, it's a milestone of an achievement! -- Beryl Lin, President University of New South Wales Medical Society The first edition of the 'Unofficial Guide to Paediatrics' is a delight. It is a new kind of paediatrics textbook for a new generation of students and professionals learning about child health and clinical paediatrics. Its quality will ensure its position alongside the very best resources available for supporting those trying to improve health care for children worldwide. -- Dan Magnus, Consultant Paediatric Emergency Medicine, Bristol Royal Hospital for Children, International Child Health Group Convenor, RCPCH The Unofficial Guide to Paediatrics is a wonderful compilation of a systems-based approach to a challenging subject matter, with something of interest for everyone. From the 'sharp end' of the complexities of adolescent medicine to the pragmatism of pursuing a career in paediatrics, this volume is beautifully illustrated and well referenced, and contains a wealth of knowledge and experience from a range of contributors who clearly appreciate what life is like on the frontline of paediatric practice. -- Andrew Long, Vice President (Education), RCPCH, Consultant Paediatrician and Associate Medical Director, Great Ormond Street Hospital The layout and attention to detail in this unofficial guide is a tremendous asset for aspiring paediatricians as well as for those professionals interested in community child health. -- Anthony Costello, Director, Department of Maternal, Newborn, Child and Adolescent Health, World Health Organisation. If knowledge is to be pulled together in a textbook, then every effort should be made to make that knowledge as relevant and accessible to the reader as possible, and that is what the Unofficial Guide to Paediatrics achieves. -- Simon Broughton PhD FRCPCH, Consultant Paediatrician, Kings College NHS Foundation Trust. Senior Lecturer Kings College London (Course Director, MSc in Advanced Paediatrics). Training Programme Director It's always difficult to grasp what's important when you're approaching a subject like paediatrics. The Unofficial Guide to Paediatrics is smart because it tries to combine speciality-specific knowledge with the experience of practitioners at all levels and - most importantly - the duty of care and advocacy for children. -- David Osrin, Professor of Global Health, UCL Institute for Global Health, UK, Honorary Consultant Paediatrician, Great Ormond Street Hospital, UK
