This month’s issue focuses on the healthcare of children and young people. We have clinical articles looking at the use of virtual reality in safeguarding training and nature-based physical activity as an early intervention for teenagers. We also have two articles on constipation, focusing on developing a care pathway and addressing withholding behaviours. Meanwhile, the news section looks at data suggesting a huge rise in children and young with eating disorders and an interview with Alison Morton, executive director of the Institute of Health Visiting. Our opinion section features three people at different stages of their career in nursing children. Children’s nurse and former Nursing Times student editor Holly Veness discusses ways to reduce upsetting hospital visits, Jessica Semedo, the 2002 Student Nurse of the Year: Children writes about youth violence, and Michelle Eleftheriades, RCN children and young people’s lead, reflects on the specialty’s current landscape.
