This issue of ANS contains two notable "firsts" for the journal, To begin, an interview with Dr Barbara Carper by Elizabeth Eisenhauer introduces "ANS General Topics." This issue also contains the first ANS open access article: "Adaptive Leadership Framework for Chronic Illness" by Dr. Ruth Anderson and her colleagues. The articles that focus on the issue topic "Models of care for the Future" cover a broad spectrum of settings and approaches to care that can inspire new ideas and possibilities. Each article in this issue will be featured on the ANS blog, so I invite you to visit and follow the blog to stay informed about the latest in ANS!
