The Rourke Baby Record (RBR) is an evidence-based health supervision guide for primary healthcare practitioners of children in the first five years of life.

The Rourke Baby Record (RBR) is an evidence-based health supervision guide for primary healthcare practitioners of children in the first five years of life.

The RBR contains guidelines and information for comprehensive well baby/child care including nutrition monitoring, developmental surveillance, physical examination parameters, immunizations, and anticipatory guidance on safety, family, behaviour and health promotion issues. It provides a structured form for charting, acts as an aide-mémoire, allows for efficient use of time, encourages a team approach, and is an ideal teaching tool for comprehensive, evidence-based well baby/child care.

Originally developed in 1979 by Drs. Leslie and James Rourke, family physicians currently living in St. John’s, Nfld., the latest revision was completed in August 2009 in collaboration with Dr. Denis Leduc, a paediatrician from Montreal, Que., who is a past president of the Canadian Paediatric Society.

The Rourke Baby Record is endorsed by the College of Family Physicians of Canada (CFPC) and the Canadian Paediatric Society (CPS).
