Allergies and Adolescents : Transitioning Towards Independent Living Paperback / softback
Edited by David R. Stukus
This unique book is intended to assist readers in understanding various allergic diseases as they pertain to the adolescent, with a strong focus on encouraging their transition into self-management.
Allergies and Adolescents thoroughly addresses both the cognitive and social development of adolescents and provides effective strategies for involving them in their own self-management.
Different types of nonadherence are covered in detail, and specific conditions such as allergic rhinitis, asthma, food allergy, and eczema each have a chapter devoted to a comprehensive discussion of basic concepts surrounding diagnosis and management.
These chapters are then followed by a separate chapter providing details as to how that condition can specifically impact adolescents.
Chapters containing practical tips that can be immediately implemented by adolescents and their families as well as clinicians conclude the book. Written by experts in their respective fields, Allergies and Adolescents is a comprehensive resource for multiple audiences, including the allergist, pediatrician, and any other healthcare provider working with adolescents, guiding them towards self-management, and preparing them for independent living.
