This book is about families with children, and the philosophy of family-centered care is emphasized. This book is also about providing atraumatic care – care that minimizes the psychologic and physical stress that health promotion and illness can inflict. Features such as family Focus, Community Focus, and Atraumatic Care boxes bring these philosophies to life throughout the text. Finally, the philosophy of delivering nursing care is addressed. We believe strongly that children and families need consistent caregivers. The establishment of the therapeutic relationship with the child and family is explored as the essential foundation for providing quality nursing care.
This text serves as a reference manual for the practicing nurse.
