Dear colleagues,

Welcome to an additional edition of the Institute of Community Health Nursing Newsletter for 2018.

In my last message I provided an update on the key aims, objectives and deliverables from the MACE Project. Continuing with this theme please see a number of research articles and presentations on the theme of adverse childhood experiences.

On December 6th, Minister for Health, Mr Simon Harris, will launch new resources for parents and children including a brand new website and two new books.

Website: mychild.ie

Books: My Pregnancy and My Child 0-5 years.

These resources will be available to parents and healthcare professionals from 2019.

I hope you find the research articles of interest and I look forward to forwarding you the final President’s Message in December 2018.

Hon President ICHN

Anne Lynott
