Book Description

Children and Their Families: The Continuum of Care provides a unique interdisciplinary perspective that underscores the nurse's role in planning, coordinating, and working with all members of a pediatric health care team. It shows students how to make critical judgments and assessments to manage the care of children in a variety of community settings, including homes, schools, and medical centers. From infancy through adolescence, this text thoroughly covers the health promotion, surveillance, and maintenance needs of children. In this edition, threaded case studies follow a community of pediatric clients and continue throughout the chapter to show the interrelated dynamics of pediatric nursing care.

A companion Website includes journal articles, NCLEX®-style chapter review questions, a Spanish-English audio glossary, Watch and Learn videos, a fluids and electrolytes tutorial, and much more.

Editorial Reviews

Review

-- "I like the ease of reading and the level of difficulty. My students often complain of not understanding the chapter content. I especially like the family coping tables. It is very good to see it arranged in that fashion." -- "Very clear wording, easy to read and understand." -- "Very easy to read and follow author's train of thought. Did a stellar job in explaining the more difficult information. Did not waste time with text that was easy to understand."

2.0 out of 5 stars Use Wong's July 15, 2012
Format:Hardcover
While I'm sure she is a nice person, the author's writing leaves a lot to be desired. She constantly contradicts herself or repeats the same information over and over. This book is verbose. It has valuable information, but getting to the information could take several hours of reading.

This is a very well written book, but I wish it had chapter summaries and review questions included in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Condition April 30, 2014

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I paid less that $6.00 for this book expecting to receive it mildly used . I.E. highlighted pages, torn pages or even bent pages. However, the book was practically brand new and even came with an unused access code for the online resources. My college bookstore wanted $106, so this was definitely a steal. I love Amazon!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book February 7, 2014
By jkim300
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is required for one of my nursing courses.
To me, it is an easy read even though the chapters are really long.
Buy this one instead of the newer edition because my classmates who have the newest edition told me that even the chapters are in the same order. Also, both books have the same number of pages.
Enjoy peds!
