The Journal of Pediatrics and Neonatal Nursing: A Forum for Ideas, Innovation, and Illumination.

The inaugural issue of Pediatrics and Neonatal Nursing which debuted this past December was the culmination of months of dedication, innovative planning and collaborative effort of Openventio Publishers to serve the needs and well-being of infants, children, and adolescents.

Openventio Publishers through a broad scope of fields including all specialties and subspecialty areas of medicine and nursing demonstrates a commitment and vision to encourage and enhance research involvement of the clinical and basic science arena not to date seen by existing literature presentation. Its journals seek to create an open dialogue amongst clinicians and researchers of diverse backgrounds and levels of expertise from the established and funded to the novice and young investigator just beginning exploration to collectively contribute to contemporary levels of knowledge. In my field, there is considerable interest directed at the development and provision of evidence based data for various pharmacological management approaches which demonstrate efficacy and safety in clinical settings. For the past twenty five years I have maintained an active albeit limited role in academic medicine and pediatric dentistry while teaching effective and safe use of pediatric sedation at three noted universities.

My career began as a fulltime educator, post-doctoral residency program director and behavioral researcher. Publications over the past three decades have focused on circumstances where conventional and mainstream communication strategies prove inadequate or inappropriate to help children cope with extensive and intrusive treatment.
