Mind That Child: A Medical Memoir

This is an extraordinary memoir from an extraordinary man. Simon Rowley is New Zealand's leading authority in paediatrics and neonatal care, but his expertise in early brain development is especially pertinent in the age of information overload for our children. A must for all parents.

Mind That Child: A Medical Memoir

Dr Simon speaks from his extensive experience and qualifications. Highly specialised in his field of Neonatology and Paediatrics, teaching in Starship Children’s Hospital and an honorary lecturer at the University of Auckland School of Medicine along with 30 year’s experience of paediatric private practice – he has a full measure of understanding the complex needs of neonatal babies and young children. He tells of pioneering research and scientific studies that have paved a way through to the amazing levels of care we have today. It’s written in a style that is personal and he often reflects on how situations or patients have changed how he has delivered his medical care. Dr Simon is meticulous and cares deeply for the children he cares for and is very intuitive which has often given him the answers to medical mysteries. He has seen significant changes in the high-risk management of pre-term babies and the impacts of drugs, alcohol and technology on their developing minds. Above all, he is a doctor who is compassionate and cares deeply about bringing the things that matter to his practice. It’s more than the mere delivery of a service, instead Dr Simon writes openly about the personal impact on his lifelong career in medicine – and there are thousands of children throughout New Zealand who can be thankful for that absolute dedication. It’s a fascinating read!
