The unit forms part of the Supportive Studies Cluster. Caring for children and adolescents presents particular challenges for nurses requiring an appraisal of growth and development, legal and ethical responsibilities of the nurse and how these impact on the requirements specific to these age groups. In this context opportunities will be provided for students to develop a systematic body of knowledge about the role and responsibilities of the nurse in managing symptoms, risk, and identifying appropriate evidence-based interventions to promote optimal functional status and development of the child or adolescent. Opportunities will be provided for students to examine current social and health issues relating to children and adolescents.
