The text includes chapters on the underpinning knowledge and principles for the care of children who need neurosurgery as well as the following common neurological problems: * Hydrocephalus * Traumatic Brain Injury * Craniosynostosis * Brain Tumours * Surgical management of epilepsy in children * Cerebrovascular disorders * Neural tube defects The complexity of the nervous system and principles of care are presented logically with points to consider and essential care clearly highlighted and, where available, evidence-based practice is presented. It includes a range of pedagogical features, such as chapter overviews and summaries, diagrams, sample care plans, text boxes and a glossary. This book is essential reading for pre-registration nursing students and newly qualified nurses but will also be of use to allied healthcare professionals working with children and young people requiring neurosurgery.
