Section IV: Children with Special Needs; and Section V: Mental Health Issues in Children - cover topics unique to the practice of pediatric emergency nursing.

Meant to provide quick information in a user-friendly, modified outline format, the book is useful to nurses in both pediatric and adult emergency departments.
