This practical handbook focuses on promoting the health of children in the community by considering the health needs of the healthy child in the context of a family unit.
Containing up--to--date, research--based material, the book reflects the developing role of the community nurse and draws together the experience of experts in a wide range of community teaching and practice.
The key areas of concern in relation to health issues surrounding children are dealt with in detail.
The book includes both physical needs (ie, nutrition, immunisation, infection and dental health] and psychological issues [ie, development, behaviour, children at risk].
This is an essential resource for all community health--care nurses in practice or training.
