Child-Centred Nursing presents a unique approach by bringing children to the fore of the discussion about their health and health care. It encourages you to think critically about children, their families and contemporary practice issues. It promotes reflection on how you can develop innovative practice so as to improve children’s health outcomes and their experiences of health care.
Clinical case studies and critical thinking exercises are included in each chapter, creating and sustaining a clear link between professional practice, research and theory.
The book is essential reading for all pre-registration and post-graduate students studying children’s and young people’s health care.
This is an excellent resource for students
Well set out book, one of the only ones i have found that focuses on child nursing in a way which encourages practitioners to reflect on what they are doing.
Very useful book - requested copies for library - but too specific for undergraduate course to have as required text
Well written and easy to read
This book really helps students to develop critical thinking within their nursing practice. The case studies throughout the book give them a focus and helps them to consider the impact of decisions on the child and family. I would recommend this book as essential reading for all student nurses embarking on a career in child health nursing.
Very good chapter on involving children in decision making. This is useful for the health visiting students
A good book on critical thinking, useful for all years of children's nursing
Current and relevant to todays childrens nursing curriculum. Ideal for students to address important concepts applicable for the whole of their training and careers
Well writen book that commpliments the other texts already in use
Essential reading for children's and young people's nurses and those aspiring to a career in nursing. The voice of the child comes across clearly through the use of case studies and in the clear and insightful way gaps in our understanding are challenged using a child-centred approach. The reader is encouraged to reflect on key concepts throughout and link these to best practice to improve not just the health of the child, but also their experience of receiving care.
Really good for a general overview
