Can’t get enough of Bubble Wrap? The Bubble Wrap Plus is a monthly paediatric journal club reading list from Anke Raaijmakers working with Professor Jaan Toelen & his team of the University Hospitals in Leuven. This comprehensive list is developed from 34 journals, including major and subspecialty paediatric journals. We suggest this list can help you discover relevant or interesting articles for your local journal club or simply help you to keep a finger on the pulse of paediatric research.

This month’s list features answers to intriguing questions such as: ‘How do children respond to masked paediatricians?’, ‘Are the youngest children in a classroom at increased risk of being medicated for ADHD?’, ‘Does neonatal paracetamol treatment lead to problems later in life?’, ‘Are probiotics useful for treating IBS?’ and ‘Is digital media exposure early in life associated with autism?’.

You will find the list is broken down into four sections:
