  • Photostories brings information and concepts alive so students develop a deeper understanding about the effect of a specific condition on the child and family. (pg. 332-333, ch25)
  • As They Grow provide a clear visual representation of how children differ from adults anatomically and physiologically. (p272, ch 25)
  • Critical Thinking is encouraged throughout and questions can even be found in the captions of most art and illustrations throughout. Highlighted in blue, these encourage students to apply critical thinking skills to particular situations. (p272, ch 25)
  • Pathophysiology Illustrated allows students to see into the body so students can visualize the causes and effects of various conditions in children. (p275, ch25)
  • An entire unit has been dedicated to health promotion and maintenance teaching students how to look at the chronically ill child as any other child, with health maintenance needs for prevention, education and basic care. A tear-out poster is also included to further enhance student comprehension. (p42, ch25)
  • Partnering with Children and Families is the underlying theme of this innovative text. A feature dedicated specifically to this subject, teaches empowerment of the family in the role of care as well as the concepts of family-centered care and the importance of the nurse in that client education. (p285, ch25)
