CLOSE INTENDED AUDIENCE This activity was developed for nurses and other healthcare professionals who need information about caring for pediatric patients, specifically neonates to toddlers. COMMERCIAL SUPPORT ACKNOWLEDGEMENT No commercial support was provided for the development of this activity. STATEMENT OF NEED Caring for pediatric patients can be challenging because their bodies function differently, and they may not be able to clearly communicate their needs or problems. As they grow, children can begin to explain how they feel, but may still be wary of the healthcare provider because they fear getting a shot or other painful intervention. It is extremely important for healthcare professionals to understand the concepts of normal growth and development so that they can deliver age-appropriate care to their patients.
