Sian Thomas, Carolyn Middleton, Denise Llewellyn
In April 2016 the Nursing and Midwifery Council introduced revalidation for all nurses and midwives. It was designed to demonstrate a registrant's ability to practise safely and effectively throughout their career and thereby improve patient and public protection. Children's nurses should be aware of their renewal (revalidation) date to prepare their portfolio in good time. The portfolio must include evidence of 450 hours of practice, 35 hours of continuing professional development, five examples of feedback on practice and five written reflective accounts...

Lucy Bray, Stephanie Sinha
We have developed an information leaflet with advice on how to support children before, during and after a planned clinical procedure, using ideas from consultations with parents and professionals. Children worry about these procedures and children who are prepared and supported through procedures have better experiences. The project developing the leaflet had five phases: a scoping review of existing information, a parent consultation group, readability and parent feedback, professional input and feedback, and a final review by the patient information officer...

[Figure: see text] The aim of this project was to provide training to nursing staff to improve their confidence and knowledge when caring for children and young people with mental health problems. A one-day bespoke training course was given to a purposeful sample of eight children's nurses. The nurses completed questionnaires before and after the training day and a third questionnaire three months after the course. All nurses reported an increase in knowledge and confidence when caring for young people with mental health problems...

If you read the website run by the charity YoungMinds you get a stark warning about the mental health problems that young people and the health professionals that work with them deal with. One in ten young people aged 5-16 have diagnosable mental health disorders, and between one in every 12 and one in 15 children and young people deliberately self-harm.

Other organisations bringing together young people with cancer include Real Share South West, which uses social media to encourage peer-to-peer interaction among young people with cancer who live in remote areas. Such online projects demonstrate how the use of social media and video blogging can be a tool for connecting and communicating. Digital communication and support is being used more and more in healthcare and it is a progressive trend that can be life enhancing for young people with cancer.

Background Newborn screening (NBS) identifies pre-symptomatic babies who are at risk of carrying or being affected by genetic or congenital conditions (UK Newborn Screening Programme Centre 2012). Screening for cystic fibrosis (CF) is not diagnostic and, once a positive screening result has been obtained, further testing is required to determine whether the child is affected by CF.

Parents find the delivery of positive newborn screening results distressing, in large part due to information provision at time of screening and when the results are communicated to them ( Buchbinder and Timmermans 2012 , Salm et al 2012 , Chudleigh et al 2016 ).

Rachael Bolland, Jim Richardson, Rebecca Calnan
Young people with mental health needs are often cared for on children's wards by generalist children's healthcare professionals (CHCPs). Generalist CHCPs find these encounters challenging and difficult but they are viewed as an opportunity to improve the healthcare offered to these young people. The authors secured funding from Health Education South London to design and deliver interactive workshops to improve the communication skills of CHCPs with adolescents in challenging circumstances. In this article, the authors outline the design and content of the workshops and discuss how the workshops explore and challenge the attitudes the participants have that could prevent a young person from seeking support or engaging with professionals...
