Clinical skills are a fundamental aspect of nursing care of children and young people. The Great Ormond Street Hospital Manual of Children's Nursing Practices is an evidence-based manual of practical skills in children's nursing, which builds on the extensive expertise developed at Great Ormond Street Hospital. It encompasses all aspects of children's nursing from the most basic aspects of everyday practice to advanced practice in high dependency and intensive care to provide a comprehensive resource for all qualified nurses, students, and other health-care professionals involved in caring for children, both in the hospital and the community setting.
Children's and young people's nursing presents unique challenges. The Great Ormond Street Hospital Manual utilises the latest clinical research and expert clinical knowledge to address these challenges, and provides the underlying theory and evidence for nursing care of children. The Manual provides a definitive guide to clinical skills procedures in children's and young people's nursing which enables nurses working with children and young people to practice confidently and deliver clinically effective family-centred care.

All children's nurses should have this book as a reference." ( Nursing Standard , 10 October 2012) "It considers all aspects of children's nursing from everyday practice to advanced procedures in high-dependency and intensive-care units with the aim of providing a comprehensive resource for all qualified nurses, students and other healthcare professionals involved in caring for children in hospital and community settings."

It is ideal for a student as it answers all the 'why' questions that they may have about any procedure you can think of...Informative, easy to read, engaging and interesting."( Emma Louise Scragg, 3rd year child nursing student, Salford University ) "A very useful and practical manual on the nursing practices for children...A great manual, thank you!"
