The United Nations (UN) Convention on the Rights of the Child (UN, 1989) advocates the right of every child to self-determination, dignity, respect, non-interference and the right to make informed decisions. When children and young people (CYP) need hospitalisation or nursing care in the community, these fundamental rights may be tested. Therefore, developing an effective therapeutic relationship with good communication skills, is essential for nurses when caring for CYP.
