The first edition of this authoritative textbook has become the key text for a wide audience of providers and facilitators of care and treatment through childhood. It is essential reading for child health professionals and is still the only text in this important area. This exciting new edition is again structured into four main sections: 'Organisational facets'' 'Philosophical issues', 'Dimensions of practice', and 'Advancing practice', and has been expanded to include detailed guidance on the commissioning and resourcing of services. It provides essential information for implementing the requirements of the children's National Service Framework that will support the expansion of Community Children's Nursing and enable it to move forward and away from fragmented service delivery. Bringing together the work of some of the most distinguished experts in the field, there is comprehensive coverage of the key aspects of Community Children's Nursing, including multi-disciplinary/interagency planning; provision of nursing services to sick children and their families in a range of community setting; and the needs of both the recipients and providers of care within the trajectory of acute, life-limiting and terminal illness.
