SAGE is launching ICAN: Infant, Child, & Adolescent Nutrition, a multidisciplinary journal for clinicians in paediatric nutrition.

The bimonthly peer-reviewed journal, which will debut in January 2009, will have an editorial board of dieticians, nurses and nurse practitioners, physicians, speech and language therapists, and specialists in primary and acute paediatric nutritional care. It promises to offer the latest information concerning impaired eating, eating disorders, breastfeeding education, and chronic and acute care nutritional support.

It will publish research reports, reviews, clinical perspectives and case studies. ‘I’m excited about being a part of such an important project,’ said Linda Heller, ICAN editor and clinical nutrition director of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. ‘The launch of this journal recognises the vital importance that nutrition plays in the health, well-being and development of the child. ICAN will make a significant contribution to addressing some of the most critical paediatric health care issues of our time.’
