About this book


An 'evidence-based' approach to health care is growing in importance, but it is difficult for students and professionals to keep up-to-date with a vast and changing knowledge base. Even more challenging is the need to apply the evidence to everyday nursing practice.
This book helps the reader to do just that. Bringing together a range of contributors, it explores some of the latest research in children's nursing. A particular feature is the application of the findings presented to nursing practice.
