About this book

With the proliferation of research studies posted online, media outlets scrambling to pick up stories, and individuals posting unverified information via social media, the landscape for parents trying to understand the latest science as it pertains to their children has never been more challenging to navigate. This book is intended to assist pediatricians when discussing research findings with parents. It provides an overview of research practices and terminology, clarifies misconceptions about studies and findings, and explains the limitations of research when applied to medical decision making. Through this framework, physicians can explain their reasoning behind specific clinical recommendations. 
In addition to examining the broad concepts comprising research literacy, this book reviews the current findings in topics that pediatricians report discussing most often with parents, such as vaccines, diet, medications, and sleep. Pediatrician’s Guide to Discussing Research with Patients is a unique resource for pediatricians in encouraging the development of research literacy in their patients.

Reviews

“This book provides pediatricians a framework for discussing research with their patients and families. … The intended audience is primary care pediatricians. … There is a nice selection of common encounters and examples in each chapter of how these conversations can be tailored to particular situations. This is a comprehensive, yet efficient review.” (Jennifer L. McNeer, Doody’s Book Reviews, June, 2017)

“A guide for pediatricians how to present research plans to parents of children to be included in research studies or discussing research achievements in a series of diseases. A very useful book for all pediatricians in training and in practice.” (Zvi Laron, Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews (PER), Vol. 14 (4), June, 2017)
