Summary

For short maternity and pediatric courses that combine both courses into a single semester or shorter.

Co-written by maternity and pediatric nurses, this is the first combined book to thoroughly integrate maternal-newborn nursing and pediatric nursing into a single book. With an equal focus on community-based care and hospital-based care, this new textbook also incorporates complementary care, pain assessment and management, nutrition and health promotion, patient education and communication, research and evidence-based practice, and assessment as the core of the nursing process.

Features:

  • Features information about the different responses of children at various ages to health conditions.
