An increasing number of children and young people live with complex and continuing health needs, which often necessitate ongoing support from health and social care staff.  Ideally, such support should be provided in the child’s home, in manner which enables them and their families to achieve the highest quality of life. 

Providing Support at Home for Children and Young People who have Complex Health Needs explores general aspects of supporting children who have complex and continuing health needs and their families in their own homes, rather than discussing specific disorders, diseases, treatments or interventions.  The text looks at working closely with parents, working in the family home, supporting young people who have complex and continuing health needs,  understanding grief and loss,  respecting the rights of children and young people and the ethical issues involved in supporting children, young people and their families.
