A mental health crisis in younger people has become an established fact. Like manmade global warming, one might get the impression that 'the science is settled'. Yet popular media reports present scant evidence for a surge in psychiatric disorder. Snowflakes are only as real as we perceive. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

The Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) has long been recognized as the gold standard approach to testing the efficacy of medicines. More recently the method is being used to test other health care interventions - such as surgical interventions, medical devices, wound management techniques and also nursing interventions. For many years the RCT has been seen as an exclusively quantitative approach - possibly as a result of its use predominantly by medical researchers and laboratory scientists - schooled in a particularly positivist research culture...

Twenty years ago, a clinical career pathway for Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) was first established in Ireland (Begley et al 2010). This paved the way for expert nurses to optimise patient care through autonomous practice, professional and clinical leadership, and research. This change was not without its challenges for the profession. The first ANP student candidates began university education in September 2017 which is a welcome development.

We already know that an open metaphor for "scoop"-stealing other people's ideas-exists in the academic world. It may not happen often, but it does happen. It is a very sensitive subject that often evades formal discussion. Underlying reasons may be our unconscious apprehension that relations with academic colleagues could worsen or that our career development could be in danger accordingly.
