The aim of the Paediatric and Neonatal nursing section is to bring clinical PICU and NICU nurses from across Europe together. This is a forum for members to share experiences in daily practices, discuss clinical uncertainties, review education about PICU and NICU and discuss the impact of research on daily practice. Education is a really important part of our section and we are committed to developing and raising minimal educational standards for PICU and NICU nurses, to improve the quality of care for critically ill children and neonates across Europe. There is some fantastic research taking place by nursing and allied health professionals and we work closely with the Nursing Science section to help implement research results and evidence into daily practice. This helps ensure that our members have access to the best evidence surrounding PICU and NICU care and our patients and families receive the best care possible.
