Doody Core Title:
The text offers up-to-date information on pediatric surgical nursing and includes research topics and teaching sheets.
Pediatric surgical nurses have to be clinically competent, technologically savvy, able to coordinate the multi-disciplinary care team, and tend to the emotional and psychosocial needs of the family and child. This is the first book to address all aspects of pediatric general surgery from a nursing perspective—appropriate for nurses in pediatric surgery departments, student nurses interested in pediatric surgery, and nurse managers.
Published in partnership with American Pediatric Surgical Nurse’s Association (APSNA), this book packages all aspects of the pediatric surgical nurse's job into one comprehensive reference, including pre- and post-operative care, minimally invasive surgery, innovative therapies, fetal surgery, pediatric solid organ transplantation, care of congenital anomalies, and more.
