Why did you become a children's nurse? I was working in retail as a manager with Tesco when I decided to work in healthcare. I qualified as a learning disability nurse before returning to university to complete a paediatric qualification.

The vending machine on the ward where I worked a night shift had just been filled with healthy food and drinks, and patients and staff were unimpressed. So they all used a machine on another ward that was still stocked up with unhealthy fare instead.

Appropriate respite care for children with life-limiting conditions (LLC) and their families is the cornerstone of high quality paediatric care. The effect of caring for children with LLC on families, including parental needs, cannot be underestimated and respite can give families support while caring for their children. There are many different types of respite care available in Ireland, including specialist respite, inhome respite or out-of-home respite; the wishes of the family should be sought when arranging care...

Serious bacterial and viral infections occurring in early infancy are important factors affecting morbidity and mortality. Recognition of sepsis by healthcare professionals is vital and allows initiation of appropriate early treatment which can be life-saving and improve outcomes for these infants greatly. This article outlines the leading causes of sepsis, for example, group B Streptococcus (GBS), Escherichia coli and herpes simplex virus. We discuss the non-specific ways in which an infant with a serious infection may present to health professionals and highlight crucial features to look for in the history and during examination of an unwell infant, and these include 'red-flag' signs and symptoms that should be carefully elicited...

The number of children and young people diagnosed with cancer is increasing every year. Pain is a significant side effect of disease, surgery and treatments including chemotherapy. After a course of intensive chemotherapy, some children develop oral mucositis, a debilitating condition causing bleeding, pain and inflammation. Moderate and severe mucositis pain is treated with continued good oral hygiene and parenteral analgesia. The aim of this article is to identify challenges in managing chemotherapy-induced oral mucositis pain in children, and to highlight the benefits of adding ketamine as an adjuvant analgesic...

Essential facts The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has published a quality standard on diabetes in children and young people. NICE quality standards describe high-priority areas for improvement and consist of specific, measurable statements designed to achieve better care. Diabetes is becoming more common in the UK. The latest National Paediatric Diabetes Audit says the number of children and young people cared for in children's diabetes units is rising by 4% per year. In 2014-15, the prevalence in England and Wales of type 1 diabetes in those aged 15 and under was 192 per 100,000 of the general population, with slightly more males affected than females...

Background Common in children under two years, bronchiolitis is usually caused by respiratory syncytial virus (Jhawar 2003). Symptoms are usually self-limiting although some children develop respiratory distress requiring hospitalisation (Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network 2006). Supplemental oxygen, fluid support and ventilator assistance may also be necessary. In cases of moderately severe bronchiolitis, oxygen can be delivered through a head box, but some hospitals deliver high-flow oxygen therapy with nasal prongs to treat respiratory distress...

The mothers' distress and anxiety appears to have been underestimated by the nurses, who were concerned mainly with technical and safety issues. Further support for, and provision of information to, parents may improve their care experiences.

Claudia Smith, Sheryl Gettings
The number of adolescents with Crohn's disease (CD) is rising, with one third of cases diagnosed before turning 21 years old. Evidence shows that long-term medical intervention, school absence and the physical toll of CD on the growing adolescent also have a psychological effect on patients. In addition, poorly defined transition pathways are extending these problems into adulthood. The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidelines are important in shaping service delivery and distribution...
