Summary

Clinical skills are essential to the practice of nursing and learning these skills requires a wealth of both factual knowledge and technical expertise. Supplementing practical teaching, Developing Practical Skills for Nursing Children and Young People is a comprehensive skills text that describes clinical skills in the style of a tutor teaching at the bedside. Each chapter presents the essential skills for practice in a step-by-step format alongside an evidence-based rationale—anticipating common problems and suggesting practical solutions.

The book is essential reading for all student nurses working with child patients, as well as qualified paediatric nurses. It is also relevant to anyone assessing and planning care for an infant, child, or young person on the ward, clinic, or in the community. An accompanying website provides further reading lists, self-assessment questions, and PowerPoint presentations for each chapter.

From fundamental care processes to advanced nursing skills, the book and website enables readers to make a smooth transition from learner to hands-on-nurse.
