Description

For all courses in child nursing in any nursing program.

This extensively-updated text is designed to promote excellence in pediatric nursing care, in both acute care settings and in the community. CHILD HEALTH NURSING, 3/e focuses on helping students synthesize new knowledge, apply evidence-based findings, collaborate with children, families, and other healthcare professionals, and use clinical reasoning to plan superior care. It views families as integral participants in all care, and recognizes that all children need health promotion and maintenance interventions, wherever they seek care or whatever conditions they are experiencing. This edition uses current NANDA International diagnoses, Nursing Intervention Classifications (NIC), Nursing Outcomes Classifications (NOC), and Healthy People 2020 recommendations. Sample nursing care plans help students apply developmental, psychosocial, and physiologic concepts to the care of children with specific conditions. Research, clinical reasoning, and evidence-based practice are emphasized and integrated throughout, and coverage of contemporary topics ranges from genomics to new pharmacological treatment options.
