Abstract
Health care professionals need to understand their patients’ views of their condition and its effects on their health and well-being. This book builds on the World Health Organization's concepts of 'health', 'functioning' and 'quality of life' for young people with neurodisabilities: it emphasises the importance of engaging with patients in the identification of both treatment goals and their evaluation. Uniquely, it enables health care professionals to find critically reviewed outcomes-related information. The authors are leaders in their respective research fields and discuss theory, concepts, and evidence, and how these are applied in clinical settings and research applications.

Abstract
Broken dreams and hearts are all-consuming facts of life for parents of a seriously ill child or teenager, whose own lives may be put on hold for years. Broken hearts and dreams are facts of life for these families, who have to manage a combination of ongoing grief and exhaustion. This book looks at how living in the shadow of loss can bring its own precious moments, and how our children teach us to live in the present. The topics covered include: your child's fears and concerns; having time for yourself; sustaining your relationship with your partner; relationships with other siblings; your own health; difficult decisions and transitions; and, accepting the present.
