This module will explore and analyse 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 at an advanced level within a paediatric endocrine environment, or caring for children and young people where their endocrine effects are secondary to their main treatment.

Available as a standalone module: Yes
