Children's and Young People's Nursing Made Incredibly Easy! is a handy reference book in the award-winning Incredibly Easy! style—perfect for those entering or needing a refresher in children's nursing, a core subject for nurses.

The particular conditions, skills, and practice of sick children's nursing are a common component of nurse training, and the curricula for sick children's nursing courses include a heavy emphasis on family-centred care, health promotion and communication skills. This book organizes developmental concerns and childhood disorders in an intuitive way, while weaving a family-centred approach to practice throughout the material.

Taking a developmental approach, the latest information on more than 100 paediatric disorders is included, highlighting collaborative management opportunities that identify appropriate involvement of other health care team members, so vital in clinical practice today.

This informative text assists the nurse in dealing with situations unique to children's care: psychosocial structures of families, common milestones in development, childhood hospitalizations and terminal illnesses, and dosage calculations and techniques for administering medications to children.

Children's and Young People's Nursing Made Incredibly Easy! is for all degree and diploma nursing students.
