The book is designed for undergraduate student use in either a combined course in maternal 'newborn and child health or for a curriculum in which these courses are taught separately. It provides a comprehensive, in-depth discussion of the many facets of child and family health nursing, while promoting a sensitive, holistic outlook on nursing practice. As such, the book will also be useful for practicing nurses or graduate students who are interested in reviewing or expanding their knowledge in these areas.Basic themes that are integrated into this text include the experience of wellness and illness as family events, the perception of pregnancy and childbirth as periods of wellness, and the importance of knowing normal child development in the planning of nursing care. Also included are themes reflective of changes in healthcare delivery and the importance of meeting the needs of a culturally diverse population in Australia and New Zealand.
