Written by practising nurses and subject experts, this 2nd edition continues to be a unique and invaluable companion to practising and student nurses, and to all who need to understand the special issues associated with children's and young people's nursing.

Covering assessment and management, right through to advice for the family, the expert authors provide information on a wide range of topics, including normal growth and development, pain, palliative care, religion and culture, and professional issues. In addition, there is also a separate section on pediatric emergencies and coverage of recognising deviations from the norm as well as interpreting clinical findings and investigations, and measures to promote successful care practice.
