Summary "This is a text for all nurses working with children and young people who have cancer. The book brings together the latest research and practice development from three perspectives: practice, management, and education. At the end of each section there is a commentary by a practitioner, manager or researcher, which aims to offer a helpful critique on the papers in their section guiding the reader to consider other areas of research and practice development."--BOOK JACKET
