DescriptionDeveloping Nursing Practice with Children and Young People explores the context of children’s nursing in light of recent policy changes, and looks at contemporary issues and emerging roles within the field. Divided into four parts, Part One focuses on the emergence of children’s nursing in healthcare, detailing events and developments that have shaped the role of children’s nurses. Part Two examines many aspects of practice for registered practitioners in nursing, ranging from acute care settings to children’s nurses’ developing roles in primary care, mental health and with children and young people with special health and social needs. Part Three then provides a detailed analysis of advanced practice in children’s nursing. The advanced skills portfolio is presented in depth, augmented by exemplars of a number of advanced practice roles which have already been established. Finally, Part Four builds on the previous three parts by offering several case studies from practice - including accounts from children, young people and families, as well as assistant practitioners and student nurses. The text concludes by focusing on the longer term scope for children’s nurses.
