Clinical Skills in Children's Nursing

First Edition

Edited by Imelda Coyne, Freda Neill, and Fiona Timmins

  • Covers the clinical skills required for registration and beyond (including NMC's Essential Skills Clusters): includes all the skills pre-registration students need to know and advanced skills are still valuable for qualified practice.
  • Both theory and practice are provided: written, edited and reviewed by both academics and practitioners to help readers integrate their practical abilities and background knowledge.
  • All the relevant information in one place: step-by-step guidance and rationales for all procedures, plus the relevant anatomy and physiology, developmental ranges as well as family centred needs, ensures all vital issues are covered.
  • Aids family centred care: communication skills and practical tips for family centred care are threaded throughout so students can confidently deliver skills in partnership with children and families.
  • Evidence will remain current: evidence, guidelines and protocols reviewed and updated every six months on the book's accompanying Online Resource Centre.
  • Suitable for all children's nursing settings: both hospital and primary care settings so readers can transfer their skills.
  • Supports students' development from novice to professional: guides students to relevant prior knowledge to build on, highlights important points to remember, and suggests further reading.
  • Develops decision-making skills: outlines how to adapt the skills for different age groups, whilst nursing alerts anticipate and solve potential problems, and show how to recognise patient deterioration.
  • Clear visual guidance: photos and diagrams throughout
  • Active learning: over 40 realistic scenarios, interactive glossary and hyperlinks provided on the Online Resource Centre allow readers to take their learning further.
  • Online support for lecturers and mentors: access to the diagrams and photos from the book, in addition to interactive scenarios for teaching.
