Have you been looking for a succinct, accessible, and practical guide to pediatric nursing? We just published Pediatric Nursing Care: A Concept-Based Approach from experienced pediatric nurse and clinician, Luanne Linnard-Palmer. Using a core framework built around the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) competencies and family-centered care model, the text offers need-to-know content for safe and effective practices across a variety of settings and within interdisciplinary teams.
With changes in the U.S. healthcare system driving patient care out of the hospital and into diverse settings, it gives pediatric nurses indispensable information on caring for children in diverse environments, including inpatient acute care, pediatric intensive care, school nursing, and outpatient nursing. Linnard-Palmer uses her vast experience as a pediatric nurse to stress the importance of family-centered care that enables and empowers parents and caregivers as they support the child's health. The text also examines family education guidelines, such as questions for soliciting health history and the influence of culture and religion on family dynamics.
