From the Editors for 2016(6) –​

This is our last issue for 2016. We want to thank our readership for their loyalty to Advances in Neonatal Care. This issue brings to you many excellent features. First, we begin by describing how you could use the new updated SQUIRE 2.0 guidelines to provide a structure for the publication of your quality improvement work. We would like you to use these guidelines not only for the publication of your work but as also foundational in designing your quality improvement project. Next is a clinical article, I am sure you will find of great interest related to cell phone use in the NICU. We also have a discussion of a new frontier for neonatal care; implication of breastmilk stems cells. Followed by another article on strategies for providing palliative care in the NICU. This is issue is completed with two research studies, one related to the use of vibration during a painful procedure and a second one that compares skin integrity with different adhesive methods. Online we have a case study related to skin integrity and NCPAP that I am sure you all can relate to. Thank you again for reading ANC. We wish each of you a prosperous new year!!​
