This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. The skills required by children's nurses are many and varied, and are undertaken in a variety of settings. Sick children are care for at home, in children's units and hospitals, and sometimes in adult wards. In addition, children with disabilities may need nursing care while at special schools or in residential settings. This book provides a clinical manual of common practices. The guidelines have been written specifically for children's nursing by contributors from well-known children's units. The introductory section covers common concepts and the control of infection. In addition, there are appendices on the use of play as a distraction, and on complementary therapies.

  • The common format of each practice makes the book easy to use and refer to in a clinical setting.
  • Each practice is based on the latest research to ensure it is evidence-based and up to date
  • Two introductory chapters cover issues common to all practices to make the book easier to use.
  • The appendix on play therapy reinforce its common usage as a distraction technique
  • The appendix on complementary therapies explains these as they are becoming more widespread
  • All practices have been reviewed by regional centres to avoid parochialism
