Care Planning in Children and Young People s Nursing comprehensively addresses a selection of the most common issues that arise when planning care for infants, children and young people within the hospital and community setting. This core text utilizes clear images and detailed case studies to provide a holistic insight into the practice of care planning through the report of current research, best available evidence, policy and education which reflects both the uniqueness and diversity of contemporary children s nursing.

Divided into sections for ease of reference, Care Planning in Children and Young People s Nursing explores both the theory and practice of care planning. Chapters on the principles of care planning include issues such as managing risk, safeguarding children, ethical and legal implications, integrated care pathways, interprofessional assessment, and invaluable parent perspectives.

Each chapter is interactive with questions, learning activities and points for discussion creating an engaging and enquiry–based learning approach.

Care Planning in Children and Young People s Nursing is a definitive resource, reflecting innovative practice which is suitable for undergraduate and postgraduate nurse education.

I really like the look and feel of this book, it s not too large or heavy so can be carried round easier than some of the bigger texts on care planning The level is just right for someone learning care planning. Its style of writing isn t patronizing, and it is an interesting read. Emma Scragg, 3rd year child nursing student, Salford University

  A very useful and important book which should be used from year 1 as it is relevant to many things which I have already done whilst on placement It is easy to follow, understandable and clear. It is eye–catching and colourful and covers several important topics specific to children i.e. Safeguarding. Amy Warburton, 1st year child nursing student, University of Nottingham
