4 Introduction The links between health and education are well established. Healthy children are better able to learn, and strong health is highly associated with higher educational achievement. therefore work very closely with education and healthcare professionals to improve the health and learning outcomes for children and young people and make schools a healthy place to learn, work and play.
5 Introduction Chronic condition is an "umbrella" term. Children with chronicillnessesmaybeillorwellatanygiventime,but they are always living with their condition. Chronic illnesses affect at least 10 to 15 percent of American children. Responding to the needs of students with chronic conditions such as asthma, allergies, diabetes, and epilepsy (also known as seizure disorders
6 Continuation All children have different health problems during infancy and childhood, but for most children these problems are mild, they come and go, and they do not interfere with their daily life and development. For some children, however, chronic health conditions affect everyday life. Children with chronic illnesses attend school, and some of them struggle academically because of issues related to their health.
7 What is a chronic condition? Chronic illness is defined as an illness that is long term and is either not curable or has residual features that result in limitations in daily living requiring special assistance or adaptation in function (Jessup and Stein)
8 What is a chronic childhood illness? A chronic childhood illness can be defined as a medical condition that is long term or permanent, and is rarely able to be completely cured. A child with a chronic illness may be ill or well at any given time, but he is always living with the condition. Examples include asthma, epilepsy, diabetes, Crohn's diseaseand cystic fibrosis.
9 Continuation Such chronic illnesses affect the child's lifestyle, and parents will be required to deal with the child's health needs on a daily basis. Chronic illness usually requires regular medical treatment, and sometimes long hospital stays. Once the illness is routinely managed, most children can function well and live relatively normal lives.
10 Chronic Illness in America More than 125 million Americans suffer from one or more chronic illnesses and 40 million limited by them. Despite annual spending of well over $1 trillion and significant advances in care, one-half or more of patients still don t receive appropriate care. Gaps in quality care lead to thousands of avoidable deaths each year.. Patients and families increasingly recognize the defects in their care.
11 In a classroom of 30 children, 2 or more children are likely to have chronic illness
12 Common chronic childhood diseases Asthma (the most common) Diabetes Cerebral palsy Sickle cell anemia Cystic fibrosis Cancer. AIDS. Epilepsy. Spina bifida. Congenital heart problems.
13 How do kids adjust to and cope with chronic illnesses? Children reaction to diagnosis depends on several factors, which includes the child s personality, the specific illness, and their family. One big factor is the child s developmental stage. Children's understandings of illness and their coping strategies change as they grow older. Students with chronic health conditions can function to their maximum potential if their needs are met.
14 Effects of chronic illness on schooling When a child is away from school because they have been in hospital, or at home recovering, or going to medical appointments, they may find it difficult to: Complete learning activities or sit exams Maintain academic performance Take part in school activities such as sports or excursions Maintain school friendships Stay confident, positive and motivated
15 Effect on the Child The effect of chronic illness, on your child will depend on a number of things, which includes : type of illness what support you have child's age level of maturity, and individual temperament. How you as a family cope with the situation, and your attitude toward the illness, can make a big difference in helping your child to manage the emotional impact.

30 Teamwork is the key to success Student Parents SCHOOL NURSE Medical Care Classroom teacher, PE teacher, coach, principal, after-school staff
31 Teamwork is the key to success children and their families adapt well to chronic illnesses over time (Lewis & Vitulano, 2003). However, frequent hospitalizations, fatigue, anxiety, pain, and other symptoms can put children at risk for academic problems and health complications, particularly when they are first diagnosed. interventions play an important role in ensuring that students with chronic illness have the same educational opportunities as other students.
32 Continuation particularly school nurses, must partner with parents and health care providers to help children to manage their illness and participate fully in academic and extracurricular activities. They can implement strategies that reduce disruption to the school day, ensuring the school environment is safe, and providing case management when indicated (Special Report, 2003).
33 Policy of HAAD school health services Promote the health & well-being of children and adolescents; Improve access to appropriate school health services; and Enable children and adolescents develop healthy behaviors to prepare them for all life stages.
34 Role of School nurse School nurses do more than just sticking a Band-Aid. They serve as someone special when kids becomes ill and things get tough. "It's almost like being in an ER; you never know what's going to come in," Gloria Reynolds said. Screening is conducted by the School Nurse at the school on a annual basis.medical History, Body Mass Index (BMI percentile), Vision Screening (Eyesight test).
35 Role of School nurse The glue and the liaison between the family, hospital and school. Help educate staff, students and others about the child s health care needs. Monitor blood sugars, medication administration, peak flow meters and rest time during the school day.

Prevention better than cure, School health nurse is a role model for caring children with childhood illness.
