This review is from: Oxford Handbook of Children's and Young People's Nursing (Oxford Handbooks in Nursing) (Paperback)
Nursing Children provides many challenges in the modern NHS.
Providing care of the highest standard to the child and their whole family or carers can be a daunting task to nurses.

The effects of health contacts ie hospitalisation or even merely immunisations at a health clinic may have profound effects for that child throughout their life.
Recognition of varying cultures, and holistic care of the physical psychological and social needs of child and family can provide many dilemmas to provision of care and treatment.

This Oxford Handbook is very credible with 300 or more UK contributors from the field of Childrens nursing.
Sections cover Growth and Development , Professional Issues, Palliative Care, Fundamental Skills, Drugs, Child Protection and Research among others and follow a similar format : narrative about the illness or procedure; causes,; symptoms; diagnosis and investigations ; management; care and follow up, with clear referencing.

Chapters are clearly set out with bullet points for specific emphasis. Tables are also used to highlight specific areas; these use a pale blue background allowing them to be easily found when searching.
Pictures and diagrams within the text illustrate particular parts, although some of these are a little dated and not particularly clear, diagrams and line drawings are of a better quality.

Another criticism is that unfortunately - like many books - parts can become out of date quickly and the section on Immunisation in particular has been superseded by other vaccines being added: notably the Pneumococcal vaccine at 2, 4 and 13 months (this started in 2006) , Hib / Meningitis C Booster at 12 months (from 2007) and the HPV vaccine for girls aged 12-13 years which began in summer 2008.

The Emergency section is easily recognisable by the edges of the pages being blue

I have used Oxford handbooks before and find them valuable and uncomplicated to refer to; they are a good size, not too big, and use decent sized print, and portable. An abbreviations list, support organisation contact details, glossary and clear referencing help to make this guide well worth buying if parts of or the whole of your role involves nursing children , as it is a useful book to dip in and out of and answer queries quickly and readily.
