When nursing a pre-school child, meeting his total needs includes giving attention to the child’s developmental (educational) needs. Criteria against which nurses’ supportive interaction with hospitalised toddlers could be evaluated were designed. It was found that nurses in paediatric wards give very little attention to their patients’ developmental needs. However, after an inservice education programme designed for this purpose a marked improvement in the nurses’ interaction was measured. It is recommended that nurses coming into paediatric wards need a special orientation programme and that inservice education and learning opportunities should be offered to staff on a continuous basis. This would equip them with the required knowledge and skills to meet the total needs of their patients.
