Summary

Pediatric Nursing: Caring for Children and Their Families, Second Edition, is a dynamic and insightful presentation of caring for pediatric clients. The authors embrace a holistic and family-centered approach to the care and nurturing of children in all states along the health-illness continuum, from healthy growth and development milestones to illness states and chronic conditions. All nursing care is framed within a family context, underscoring the need to view the child not just as an individual, but as a member of a larger family unit. General nursing skills such as assessment, communication, and health promotion are presented within the pediatric framework, so nurses can approach children and their families with an authentic understanding of their conditions and needs.
