Life-threatening situations: Supporting the child survivor and the family

Academic Article


  • Children encounter life-threatening situations through trauma as well as acute and chronic illnesses. These life-threatening situations are not only potentially physically incapacitating but also emotionally scarring. Using Jillings' model for life-threatening illnesses, nurses are able to assess and intervene with child survivors and their families to insure optimum psychological and emotional outcomes. © 1995 W.B.
