About this book

Introduction

This new edition has been updated throughout to reflect recent changes in how the family and society care for children. The book follows a health to ill health continuum in the care of the child and his family. Current trends in treatment of children's disease and related policies are clearly explained and there is more information included dealing with child abuse. The book also reinforces the importance of appropriate application of nursing models in structuring care plans and the nursing process. Two specific models of nursing care, Roper et al and Orem, are included in this new edition. Each of the numerous care plans in the text now also include a complete section on evaluation and its importance in the nursing process.
