Kids & Teens Health: About Us

The Child Health Collection (Perth Children's Hospital)

The Child Health Collection is located in the CAHS Medical Library (Level 4) at Perth Children's Hospital. The collection provides books and DVDs on child and adolescent health suitable for health professionals and parents.

We also partner with the Ronald McDonald Family Room or Kulunga Moort Mia (Aboriginal Family Lounge) located at Perth Children's Hospital for families to access this page via CAHS medical library website as well as viewing some books suitable for parents onsite. Family Resource Centre staff can register with the library to borrow on a parent's behalf.

 Access to the physical collection at CAHS Medical Library - Registered Child and Adolescent Health Service staff only.
