Children's nurses are faced with unique challenges when undertaking clinical skills, adapting their knowledge and practice for the physical and mental developmental age of their patients. The Oxford Handbook of Clinical Skills for Children's and Young People's Nursing provides a practical guide to both the most basic and the increasingly complex elements of caring for the health needs of children and young people. Focusing on the key principles underpinning all
elements of care, it provides a solid, evidence-based framework upon which practitioners may develop their clinical knowledge, skills, and attitudes. The handbook systematically covers the body systems and the clinical skills relating to them, and includes additional tips and possible courses of action
when encountering difficulties with a procedure, with practical advice from current practitioners.
