A nurse is caring for a child that has been hospitalized multiple times for leukemia. After observing the child using several coping mechanisms, the nurse designs a plan of care that includes:


•Therapeutic play is a great way for the child to act out past experiences and feelings to reduce the trauma and anxiety related to hospitalization.

•Placing the child on medication would cover up the underlying problem.

•The remaining options do not provide the child with a non-threatening avenue to express his feelings.
