Description

'Fever in children' discusses this common symptom of illness and when parents should be concerned, depending on the baby's age. The article outlines the normal range, measurement methods and management. 

Dealing with dogs considers two major approaches to reducing dog bites among children, encouraging responsible pet ownership, and reducing the numbers of those breeds identified as being particularly dangerous.

Hib immunisation has resulted in a major reduction of infection rates, making it a public health success story. Hib was once the most common serious bacterial disease in children under five, and has now become rare.

An review of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is summarised in a National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) report, which reviews the current scientific literature and evidence on diagnosis and management.
