What reviewers said

“This is a welcome addition to nursing children and young people learning resources. It is a pocket sized, wipe clean, mini encyclopaedia of child health. It is well written, by credible experts and logically presented. The contents are applicable to any care setting.

It summarises and presents key salient points, it is admirably up to date and the material is always relevant. The seminal theories of child development are not ignored, and pleasingly mental health and complex needs of the terminally ill children are included. The authors have had the courage to address some of the grey areas in children’s nursing such as consent and the covert administration of medicines.”

What nurses and teachers have said about Clinical Pocket References

“the pocket references provide the nurse with wide, good sound knowledge to work effectively and safely”

Nurse educator, Suffolk

“an excellent addition to the more in depth text books:  but are portable, smaller  and should be valuable asset to all staff and have a place in the ward offices. For quick reference use and a supportive tool to ensure knowledge is kept up to date.”

Work-based learning facilitator and Learning and development manager, Derbyshire
