In the 1930s and 1940s, man-made medicines were replacing biological treatments for life-threatening infectious diseases. The different reactions that children had to these drugs placed unique demands on the nurses who cared for them. Discover how these nurses forged the template for post-war paediatric nursing in the United States and influenced the development of American paediatric nurse research.
