The purpose of Nursing Interventions with Infants, Children, and Families is to systematically describe nursing interventions used by nurses who serve this population. The book covers interventions for infants and children as clients, as well as the family as a client. Topics include interventions on prevention as well as interventions for children and families experiencing health problems. Each chapter examines the theoretical and research literature support for the invention and links to appropriate nursing diagnoses and outcomes. However, the focus of the chapter is on specific activities nurses can select to implement the intervention. A case study is presented to illustrate how the intervention is used in nursing practice. Implications for further research are presented with the goal of advancing nursing science by stimulating further study of nursing interventions.
