Praise for previous editions:
I am sure that this second edition of Principles and Practice of Pediatric Neurosurgery will continue to be the standard text for residents, consultants, and attendings the world over.--Journal of Neurosurgery
Lavishly illustrated and eminently readable, this book should find a place in every pediatric neurosurgeons library. --Pediatric Neurosurgery
Principles and Practice of Pediatric Neurosurgery, Third Edition is a completely revised edition of the most authoritative guide to the management of pediatric neurosurgical disorders encountered in clinical practice. Written by leaders in the field, it provides pediatric neurosurgeons with a clear understanding of the current standards of practice and treatment in the subspecialty.
This book is an essential reference for all residents and practitioners in pediatric neurosurgery and pediatric neurology.
The use of the ophthalmoscope as an aid to diagnosis, has become of such importance that it behooves the young practitioner to familiarize himself with its workings. Therefore we are in favor of the circulation of any books or monographs among the general practitioners that will tend to draw their attention to the value and importance of a thorough inspection of the interior of the eye in many diseases whose origin may be in some other organ of the body. Students too often become disheartened if they fail to take in a full view of the fundus of the eye during a few weeks' course of instruction as given by many instructors. If they will first study the principle involved in the use of the ophthalmoscope in some work like the one under review, they will much easier grasp the technique of its use. The book by Dr. Claiborne is claimed to be simply a statement of facts culled from more ponderous works, and, while not giving enough of the subject to be of great practical value, it will be found to contain elementary principles of interest to beginners in the study of the theory on which the use of the instrument is based.
A growing number of both established and newly developed doctoral programs are focusing on the preparation of practitioners rather than career researchers. Professional doctorates such as the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), Doctor of Education (EdD), Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD), Doctor of Professional Studies (DProf or DPS), and the Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) are, in fact, just a few of the professional doctorates being offered today. Professional doctorates are the fastest growing segment of doctoral education. The nature of the dissertation and the process of completing a dissertation can be quite different in a professional practice doctoral program but there are few resources for both students and faculty involved in completing and mentoring such dissertations. This book was written specifically for students and faculty involved in professional practice dissertation work. It addresses both the tasks and procedures that professional practice dissertations have in common with dissertations in "research" doctoral programs as well as the tasks and issues that are more common in professional practice doctoral programs. For example, negotiating entry into applied settings and securing the cooperation of practicing professionals is covered, as are alternative models for the dissertation (e.g., the "three article dissertation" or "TAD"). The book also covers tasks such as getting IRB approval for applied dissertation research conducted in the field and how to propose and carry out studies based on applied and professional models of research. This book, written by three experienced mentors of professional practice dissertation students, is the comprehensive guide for both students and faculty.
