Julianne Lee, Fiona Lynn
An integrative literature review was undertaken to determine the social and emotional effects on the mental health and well-being of parents of children requiring long-term ventilation at home.

Nurses have called for improvements to the care of children with autism in hospitals and the community. About 1% of children in the UK have autism spectrum disorder (ASD), which affects social interaction, behaviour and communication. However, as healthcare services are pushed to breaking point, support for such children is dwindling, the RCN warns.

Why did you become a nurse? I am a learning disability nurse who has spent a large part of my career working with children who have a learning disability and their families in the community. My experiences in supporting children have enabled me to consider their holistic needs across all areas of service and community provision.

It is fair to say that nursing morale is low and public trust in the NHS is being chipped away. Every headline in the media seems to be about the problems faced by the NHS, with too few beds and nurses, and too little money.
