Paediatrics: A Clinical Guide for Nurse Practitioners is a concise, pragmatic and clinically focused text that outlines important components to be considered when assessing and managing health problems among infants, children and adolescents. It provides nurse practitioners with information that has immediate relevance to their practice in paediatrics, and brings together the expertise of advanced paediatric nurse practitioners, paediatric specialist nurses, and other paediatric professionals.

Part One (Clinical Issues in Paediatrics) contains practical information pertaining to a variety of subjects that are intrinsic to paediatric advanced nursing practice. Part Two (Common Paediatric Problems) outlines the clinical assessment, diagnosis and management of ambulatory conditions that are often encountered, assessed and/or managed by nurse practitioners.

This will be a 'bible' for competent practise.


""There is a wealth of useful information in this book, it promotes a child-focused approach and it is written for nurses by nurses. "" Margaret Simmons, Community Practitioner, January 2004
