Fundamentals of Children and Young People’s Anatomy and Physiology contains the critical knowledge required to provide safe and effective care to young people. Emphasising the application of evidence-based theory to practice, this comprehensive yet accessible textbook helps nursing and healthcare students understand how children’s anatomical and physiological systems influence disease processes and treatment options differently than in adults. Highly visual, succinct yet comprehensive, this textbook presents an overview of the structure and function of each body system, supported by clinical applications demonstrating how the concepts relate to nursing in practice. 

Fully revised to reflect the Future Nurse Curriculum Standards, this second edition contains a new chapter on physical growth and development, discussion of social, political, and environmental impacts to children’s health and wellbeing, updated problems and activates, and more. Each chapter includes a range of effective pedagogical tools, such as learning objectives, clinical considerations, body maps, and self-assessment questions. Designed to prepare students for their careers in delivering high-quality care for children in a range of settings, this leading textbook: 

  • Provides information on the anatomical and physiological changes that leads to an altered state of health 
  • Emphasises clinical application throughout, applying the anatomy and physiology to common health conditions in children 
  • Offers a structured and comprehensive approach to child-related anatomy and physiology theory to prepare students for practice 
  • Includes access to supplementary online resources, including multiple-choice questions, interactive flashcards, searchable glossaries, and further readings  

Fundamentals of Children and Young People’s Anatomy and Physiology is essential reading for nursing and healthcare students, and a useful reference for nurses, nursing associates, healthcare assistants, assistant practitioners, and other professionals working in the field.
