This module will explore the science of paediatric endocrine nursing. A diagnosis within paediatric endocrinology can be given at birth, throughout childhood and also into adolescence, and its impact on the child and family can potentially be lifelong. Students studying this module will be working within a paediatric endocrine environment, or caring for children and young people where their endocrine effects are secondary to their main treatment.
