Rachel Brown, Mags Jubb
Healthcare play specialists (HPSs) provide therapeutic play programmes for children in healthcare settings. Each HPS student must have a mentor in practice, but most HPSs have received no formal training for their role. This article explores mentoring in the HPS service at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust. A study day for HPSs was arranged to share best practice and discuss the challenges of mentoring students. Stronger links were built between the higher education institute that delivers the training to HPS students and the trust, and the HPSs were provided with a deeper understanding of what was required of them in their mentoring role...

Why did you become a children's nurse? When I was training in the 1980s everyone did a paediatric placement and mine was on an orthopaedic children's ward. Many of the children were essentially 'well' children who were marooned in the beds. The atmosphere was markedly lighter than in other wards and I realised that children's nursing was the place for me.

Helen Bennett, Lesley McCarthy, Sam McKinnon
This article describes the implementation and evaluation of a new partnership between a children's hospice service and an NHS children's community nursing team to support children's palliative care in the community. Aims and outcomes of the service were established in its initial design and it was monitored for quality and improvement over its first year. Mixed methods of audit and evaluation strategies were used to assess the quality of the service. Findings demonstrate that it has offered significant support to children, and families valued the role of the new Alexander's nurse...

Tanya Urquhart, Jacqueline Collin
This is part 2 of an article exploring the endocrinopathies associated with cancer treatments, a growing area of care. More than 80% of all childhood cancers are treatable and the number of survivors of childhood cancer is increasing, but up to two thirds of these children reportedly present with significant health problems resulting from their treatments and about 25% of survivors have endocrine problems. This article explains how an understanding of oncology and endocrinology enables nurse specialists to educate young people about their past treatment, and its implications for their current and future health...

The UK is considered to have the highest rates of morbidity and mortality among children and adults with asthma in Europe. According to the National Review of Asthma Deaths (NRAD), 28 children died in the UK between February 2012 and January 2013 because of asthma. Most of these deaths would be considered preventable by respiratory specialists.

Sometimes, the weight and volume of evidence for a situation attains a critical mass and forces a reaction. This has just happened after the charity Bliss released a report that highlights the strain the neonatal service has been under this year, and the experiences of families in England and Wales.
