Pragmatic Children’s Nursing is the first attempt to create a paediatric nursing theory which argues for the importance of giving children living with illness access to a childhood which is, as far as possible, equal to that of their peers. Set in the historical context of the development of children’s nursing, this theory is presented in detail as an educational process, complete with eight outcome measures which allow the practitioner to evaluate its effectiveness. This book explores the triad relationship between children, carers and nurses within the context of healthcare delivery. Ht analyses the moral and ethical implications of pragmatic children’s nursing, which challenges the established ideas of family-centred care. In addition to offering theoretical grounding and debate, Randall presents four practical case studies which model how this theory may work within various hospital and community settings. Establishing a link between the concepts inherent in pragmatism and our understanding of childhood within society, this accessible book will appeal to a global audience of undergraduate and postgraduate nursing students, researchers and policy makers.

"I cannot remember when I last read a nursing text and felt the same sense of relief: at last we have a resource which brings together the mass of concepts, theories and practice issues which are so fundamental to children's nursing. What is unique about this book is that it really does take the step of putting theories into practice. This book would make an excellent introduction for those wanting to increase their level of expertise in working with children and families at any stage in their careers." - extract from The Foreword by Anne Casey - Editor of Paediatric Nursing. Family centred care is the cornerstone of Children's Nursing practice and this engaging and comprehensive text introduces both the theoretical and practical components of this important concept. The authors analyse current issues surrounding family centred care and provide readers with a unique Continuum for Practice that will enable them to implement the concept both in the community and in hospital based settings. The text is clearly structured into the following three parts: Part One provides a definition of family centred care and a Practice Continuum. Part Two is an analysis of current perspectives, issues and challenges impinging on family centred care. Part Three addresses the skills required to actually practice family centred care so that it can become a reality for children, families and nurses. The underlying principles of family centred care are presented as frameworks grounded in the realities of day-to-day practice. In this way the reader is equipped with a toolkit that they can use to develop their expertise, at their own pace in their individual care environment. Family Centred Care will be essential reading for all student and qualified nurses working with children and their families in a variety of health care settings.
