A fresh new edition, focusing on the importance of collaboration between healthcare professionals and the community.

The second edition of Child, Youth and Family Health builds its focus on the importance of a collaborative partnership between healthcare professionals and members of the community. This approach is vital in supporting, maintaining and strengthening individual and community health across a range of contexts and life stages.

Child, Youth and Family Health 2e begins by discussing issues and challenges in child, youth and family health, before addressing contexts for nursing and midwifery, all of which helps readers apply theory to practice.

This community healthcare textbook offers additional insight into the importance of the healthcare professional’s role when working with children, young people and their families, and looks at practical approaches such as program development, supporting family transitions and mental health promotion.

There are three new chapters: ‘Communication with children, young people and families - a family strengths-based approach’, ‘Acute illness: Care for the child and their family’ and 'Health promotion through early childhood' along with a range of clinical scenarios, research highlights, practice highlights and critical questions and reflections.

Written by authors who are nurses, midwives, early childhood educators and academics, along with a respected team of contributors and editors, Child, Youth and Family Health 2e provides an engaging perspective
on the fundamental challenges and issues affecting the health and wellness of infants, children, young people and their families in Australia and New Zealand.
