Pediatrics Home Page
It is a matter of opinion whether a given resource would be of use to a pediatrician. In general, for a resource to be included in PEDINFO, it must deal primarily with the pediatric manifestations of a clinical entity, or have pediatric components of obvious value to the care of patients in the pediatric age group. Many of the resources listed here are primarily of use to parents of children seen by pediatricians; the idea is that a pediatrician could use this index to refer parents to an on-line discussion group or web page that deals with a particular disease or problem. By no means is this a "parenting" web site; there are plenty of these elsewhere (...within this domain).
