Adolescent medicine continues to evolve and expand as a primary care subspecialty. Teenagers form a unique and exciting population of patients cared for by a large variety of practitioners—eg, internists, family physicians, pediatric physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and social workers. In its previous editions, Adolescent Health Care: A Practical Guide has provided a user-friendly, comprehensive review of topics important in the day-to-day practice of adolescent medicine. Now in its fifth edition, the book is clearly evolving and expanding right along with the medical field that it comprehensively describes.
