This new text has been adapted from the highly trusted Wong’s Nursing Care of Infants and Children to provide a reference for professional nurses working in paediatric and child and family health settings in Australia and New Zealand. The content covers all aspects of infant, child and adolescent care, including anatomy and physiology, child and adolescent mental health, nursing care guidelines, critical thinking, family-centred care, rural and remote health, cultural and psychosocial considerations, common presenting conditions, and therapeutic management. With input from leading local expert paediatric clinicians and academics, and carefully curated for practising paediatric nurses, and nurses newly entering paediatrics, the text aligns with local professional standards, health policies, legal and ethical considerations and population data.
