Abstract:
Basic principles for paediatric care: what ENT professionals should know. Children undergoing medical or surgical treatment for ENT disorders should receive care from doctors familiar with the specificities of paediatric ENT pathology working in dedicated clinics where there are facilities for the activities that children usually indulge in and accommodation for parents. Many aspects of care for children with ENT problems involve a multidisciplinary team con- sisting of ENT surgeons working alongside a range of medical and paramedical professionals and nurses specifically trained in childcare, as well as in ENT nursing. Within this multidisciplinary approach, we will discuss some important aspects of the psychosocial approach and nursing, anaesthesia and pharmacotherapy that should be considered in order to raise the safety and quality of patient care in paediatric otorhinolaryngology.
