Practise in the Paediatric Nursing Environment (Advanced Diploma HLT07)

The role of a paediatric nurse can be described as that of carer, coordinator, educator and emotional support and resource person. The Enrolled Nurse (EN) who is involved in paediatric care, together with other members of the paediatric team, needs to adopt a holistic attitude towards caring for the child and parent(s) as a family unit. It is important for ENs to recognise that children are not small adults and that their reactions are generally different from adults’ reactions to illness, treatment, separation from family and admission to hospital.

Practise in the Domiciliary Health Care Environment

Nursing is a diverse profession and not all nursing occurs in hospitals. Nursing in the domiciliary care environment is not necessarily hospital work transferred to the home. Domiciliary care occurs in the context of the Australian health care system and this greatly influences the characteristics of domiciliary nursing as a discipline. Nursing services, in relation to the domiciliary health care environment, may include regular and ongoing care, or care on a one-off basis in the client’s home. Coordination of care with other home care providers may fall under the nursing jurisdiction or may be facilitated through allied health professionals using a case management system.
