Authors Jean Chow, Christine Ateah, Shannon Scott, Susan Ricci, and Terri Kyle have teamed up to deliver a unique resource for students to understand the health needs of women and children. This new combination book, Canadian Maternity and Pediatric Nursing, will empower students to guide women and their children toward higher levels of wellness throughout the life cycle. The main objective is to aid the students in building a strong knowledge base that reflects the Canadian context as well as to assist with the development of critical thinking skills. In addition, the focus of the textbook will allow the reader to anticipate, identify, and address common problems and provide timely, evidence-based interventions. Maternity nursing content coverage is comprehensive, yet presented in a concise and straightforward manner. The pediatric nursing content presents the important differences when caring for children compared with caring for adults. A nursing process approach provides relevant information in a concise and non-redundant manner. The content covered in the text arms the student or practicing nurse with essential information to care for women and their families, to assist them to make the right choices safely, intelligently, and with confidence.
