Abstract

This review of patient and parent education, office laboratory procedures, and urinary tract infections is written by three pediatricians in a group practice in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The patient and parent education section covers the goals of child rearing and history taking (with emphasis on the “vulnerable child”), and reviews discipline, sleep problems, fever, smoking, and injury prevention. The office laboratory procedures section reviews the recent Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act of 1988. The urinary tract infections section reviews recent advances in diagnosis, treatments, prevention (the issue of circumcision), and radiologic studies.
