Descripción

Este libro está disponible solamente en inglés.

This all-new resource brings caregivers and educators trustworthy recommendations on a wide spectrum of chronic health conditions.

The health conditions described in this book cover a spectrum of chronic illnesses, acute situations, selected developmental and behavioral problems, and special health care needs, with a special emphasis on children with special health care needs. For this reason, the title Managing Chronic Health Needs in Child Care and Schools: A Quick Reference Guide was chosen to emphasize the inclusive nature of the subjects covered, including many common conditions that caregivers/teachers deal with on a daily basis.

It gives teachers, administrators, school nurses, and caregivers ready access to practical information and "what-to-do-when" advice. And it helps health care providers communicate essential information and instructions clearly and time-efficiently.

Contents include:

  • Care plans: development and responsibilities
  • Care plan implementation strategies for caregivers/teachers
  • Medication administration issues
  • Handling symptoms that develop in child care or school settings
  • Emergency planning recommendations
  • Quick reference fact sheets on 35+ diseases and conditions
  • Ready-to-use sample letters and forms for parents or referrals
  • Extensive listings of state, federal, and medical resources
