Written and edited by leading pediatric and family nurse researchers, Children and Families in Health and Illness provides a synthesis of the research literature in nursing for health promotion of children, pediatric acute and chronic conditions, and children and families and the health care system. Each of the four sections begins with a historical overview of the literature. The first three sections present reviews of assessment and intervention models and implications for practice, education, and research for their respective topics. The concluding section examines community infrastructures and issues in health services research. Children and Families in Health and Illness will prove an excellent shelf reference for researchers, graduate students and faculty, and a thought-provoking read for advanced-level practitioner nurses in child or family nursing.
