Paediatrics is the medical specialty concerned with the general medicine of childhood.

Working with and treating children with injuries or medical conditions can require special skills and approaches, including psychological factors, family issues, management of disabilities, social conditions and relationships with other organisations such as schools and support groups. Not all of these factors will be relevant to every case but these are general examples to indicate the broad scope of paediatrics.
