Clinical Practice Guidelines for Nurses in Primary Care - Pediatric and Adolescent Care
The guidelines for nurses in primary care address the diagnosis and management of many of the most common health problems seen in children in remote northern Aboriginal communities.
The information provides assessment (history and physical examination), diagnostic, and management guidelines for common health problems and emergency situations seen within specific body systems. These guidelines also provide general information about pediatric assessment and care (for example, health maintenance), and pediatric procedures (for example, intraosseous infusions).The information presented is relevant to the practice setting of primary care nurses in Aboriginal communities and is derived from available best practice evidence.
Web links and/or links to specific documents have been included in each chapter to provide further information on a topic.
The information currently available in these guidelines is evidence informed and has undergone a multidisciplinary review.
