Children and young people suffering from long-term conditions require continuing support and nursing care throughout their lives. Nursing Care of Children and Young People with Chronic Illness explores chronic disease management in the context of recent developments, including the National Service Framework for Children. It addresses the aetiology of chronic illness and the impact on the child’s family. It also explores holistic approaches to caring for their social, physical and psychological needs, and highlights the importance of the nurse’s role in promoting children and their parents as ‘expert patients’.
