From the Editors for 2017(2) - ​

Thanks for being a faithful reader of Advances in Neonatal Care, without readers we don't have a reason for a journal. Please consider writing a letter to the editor. In this edition of the journal we tell you how to write a letter, and why you should consider writing a letter to us. Sometimes you might read something in the journal that you don't believe is quite right or that you don't agree with – please let us know'; tell us your thoughts in a letter, we hope to hear from you! In this issue we also have articles about non-opioid management of NAS as well as nurses response to end-of-life care. These are timely and somewhat controversial topics; please take the time to read these papers and let us know what you think. There are also papers about therapeutic hypothermia and temperature probe placement, both topics important to routine care in the NICU. Last but not least there are papers important to care of families such as parent support programs, immunization status of NICU graduates and parent use of smartphones and internet preferences. These are all areas that will help nurses better provide care to the families who must cross the threshold of the NICU. Happy reading!! Please do let us know what you do think about this latest issue of Advance in Neonatal Care.
