It includes a wealth of cases that span topics such as the maintenance of a vital pulp, root canal treatment, surgical endodontics and trauma. Each case is accompanied by full-colour photographs and/or radiographs that illustrate the key stages in diagnosis, treatment planning, treatment and prognosis. In addition, detailed commentary provides information on viable alternative treatment strategies, rationale (biologic considerations) for the treatment, evaluation of the evidence for/against the course of treatment, and the prognosis. This important text allows dentists to apply their existing knowledge to a range of clinical scenarios and to gain new knowledge and apply it to further clinical situations. Readers are encouraged to transfer knowledge and diagnostic skills from one problem to another and are guided to improve their self-directed learning and reflective skills. • More than 60 clinical cases • Evidence-based • Richly illustrated in full colour • Unique problem-solving approach • International list of contributors ADA NEWS AUG 11:Layout 1 29/6/11 4:33 PM Page 1 HeADLine inDiCAtORS for children’s health, development and wellbeing for 2011 MOST AUSTRALIAn CHILdREn dOInG wELL bUT nOT ALL According to a new report recently released by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) on indicators for children’s health and wellbeing, Australia’s children are generally faring well in terms of their health and wellbeing, but there is room for improvement in several areas. The report, Headline indicators for children’s health, development and wellbeing, 2011, provides information on how children aged 0–12 years are tracking across 12 of 19 nationally agreed priority areas covering health, early learning and care, and family and community. The Children’s Headline Indicators are designed to help guide and evaluate policy development by measuring progress on agreed priority areas for children and have been endorsed by Ministerial Councils for health, community and disability services, and education. The report indicates that internationally, Australia’s performance was better than the OECD (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development) average based on data for infant mortality, low birthweight, dental health, injury deaths and teenage births. However, there is still room for Australia to improve in comparison to the top OECD countries. Results vary between states and territories, across particular population groups (such as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children) and those in remote or socioeconomically disadvantaged areas. It is clear, therefore, that there is scope for further gains across a number of indicators.
