Consultant editor steps down after eight years of dedication and support

Sophie Blakemore @EditorENjournal Editor, Emergency Nurse

Welcome to the May issue of Emergency Nurse, packed with content we hope you will find invaluable to your daily practice.

Before I give you a heads up on what’s inside this edition, I want to take this opportunity to thank Tricia Scott for her support for Emergency Nurse, and to me as editor, during her time as the journal’s consultant editor.

Ms Scott stepped down from the role in March after eight years of providing expert advice and feedback on our content, and acting as an ambassador for the journal, for which we are incredibly grateful.

Following Ms Scott’s departure, I am delighted to announce that Cliff Evans, consultant nurse and educationalist in the emergency department at Medway NHS Foundation Trust, Kent, will now take over as consultant editor.

Mr Evans has supported the journal for several years as a writer, commentator and member of our editorial advisory board. He and his team have also been finalists in the RCN Nursing Awards.

I have no doubt that Mr Evan’s experience and expertise will greatly benefit the journal and its readers.

In this issue you will find a continuing professional development article on how to maximise infection prevention and control in the emergency department (page 34), as well as clinical articles on recognising and managing accidental hypothermia (page 19), identifying, and treating stridor in children (page 27), and a new-style practice question on delirium (page 18).

This one-page, peer-reviewed article is designed to provide a bite-sized response to a question on a specific topic, with the aim of promoting best practice.

We will be publishing more of these practice questions online and in print, and I would love to hear your thoughts on them, as well as any ideas for other clinical questions you would like answered.
