Paediatric gastroenterology, hepatology, and nutrition encompass a wide range of paediatric practice with conditions being managed in a wide variety of settings, dependent upon their complexity. This includes primary care, secondary services, and specialist paediatric practice. Conditions such as abdominal pain and constipation can be assessed in any of these settings. Conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease, intestinal failure, and liver failure require specialist assessment but still shared care within the wider healthcare environment. Nutritional problems are seen by us all in everyday practice with nutritional support being an integral part of the management of any chronic disease. The handbook is intended as a practical reference for practitioners who commonly see such conditions both in training and in clinical practice. The idea is that the clinician can dip in for information on practical management but also background information on specific conditions. The chapters reflect common situations encountered in practice. The handbook includes bullet points, lists, and management guidelines where possible. The references have been limited as much of this is available through the Internet, and websites have been listed where helpful. Only limited information has been included about drug dosing and readers are referred to the British National Formulary for Children for further information.
