About this item
The eight chapters in this book consider the role of nurses in protecting children from abuse and neglect, with emphasis on England but including examples from the wider UK and Europe. Public health and nursing specialists from the UK and Finland focus on the theme of public health and discuss health visiting, the pan-European perspective, the wider nursing and midwifery workforce, the role of public health nurses in early detection and intervention, and leadership in an acute general hospital setting. The book originated in a series of papers from a symposium at the International Society for the Prevention of Child Abuse & Neglect (ISPCAN) European Regional Conference held in Dublin, Ireland, in September 2013.
