Learning to live with COVID and looking to the future

Welcome to the third edition of the BJN Nutrition Supplement in association with the National Nurses Nutrition Group (NNNG).

May I start off by wishing you all a very happy and healthy 2022. This is the year we, hopefully, all learn to live with COVID-19. The past few years have been a struggle for all healthcare workers, but they have kept services running, despite having to cope with staff isolating because of COVID. It is very evident that the pandemic has had a big impact on staff and services in both the acute and community settings.

While I write this, even though it is pouring with rain outside, there are signs of the coming of spring. There are daffodils starting to emerge—yet another sign that times are changing.

I must admit that I currently have a daily obsession with five-letter words. Nurse, stoma, bolus, audit, tubes and bowel are all words that seem to start off my daily quest! Is anyone else getting their daily hit with a certain word game? If you are on any type of social media you would be hard pressed to miss it!
