Families with Disabled
Take this Course
This program is the first in a series of three course offerings designed to
prepare nurses to work with families of children with disabilities. Each program
has specific objectives and may be taken separately, or as part of the series.
This course (Part I) provides the nurse with information to address the grief
process that follows the diagnosis of disability in a child, as well as stressors
faced by families of children with special needs. Along with a discussion of
family systems and their impact on the child with disabilities, the program
discusses family expectations relevant to nursing practice. Please see Objectives
for a specific list of the course goals.
