Summary Good practice must be based on sound research evidence. But as health professionals strive to improve the quality of the care they deliver, the demands on their time are ever increasing. It is difficult for them to keep up with a vast and changing store of knowledge. Even more challenging perhaps is the need to apply the evidence to everyday nursing practice. This book helps the reader to meet both of these challenges. A range of eminent contributors present some of the latest research in children's nursing, and then go on to explore the implications for practice in the light of the evidence shown
