Children's and young people's (CYP) nursing requires special skills and a unique perspective. The Oxford Handbook of Children's and Young People's Nursing gives concise, practical and expert advice on all aspects of the nurse's role. Written for both practising and student nurses, it is a comprehensive and reliable guide to the care of children and young people in a family context.

Giving a complete picture of the role of the CYP nurse, the contents are arranged to mirror the key concepts of CYP nursing. Helping you achieve the best possible results for your patients, the authors offer a wealth of recommendations, guidance and information from their years of experience. Whatever situation you are in, the Oxford Handbook of Children's and Young People's Nursing will give you the information you need.

Designed to allow any nurse to deliver safe and effective care, basic principles and emergency protocols enable action to be taken in any setting and without expert assistance. Core content includes assessment; management; and advice to the family; with sections on recognition of deviations from the norm; the interpretation of clinical findings and investigations; and measures to promote successful care practice. Further key topics include normal growth and development, religion, culture and spirituality, professional issues, pain, palliative care and a separate section on paediatric emergencies.

So you can find the information you need without delay, the book is clearly laid out with one topic per page, and written in an easily readable note-based style. Blank pages for writing notes, observations and local protocols allow your handbook to be customised to meet your specific needs. All this is available at your fingertips, in a pocket-sized handbook with hard-wearing plastic covers.

Written by practising nurses and subject experts, the Oxford Handbook of Children's and Young People's Nursing is a unique and invaluable companion to practising and student nurses, and to all who need to understand the special issues associated with children's and young people's nursing.
