WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ON TWITTER, FACEBOOK, AND OUR BLOG
“There are many male victims of domestic abuse, and the abuser is not always—perhaps not usually—a wife or girlfriend.” “I've been in Healthcare IT for over 25 years and no matter what system you have you can't stop the users from clicking on the wrong patient.” “I, myself, like the 12-hour shifts. Continuity with patient care is a plus and working the 3/12s in a row is pretty nice.... I feel more organized and less rushed to finish up my day.”
* Monthly highlights: Listen to AJN editors discuss the contents of the February issue.
* Behind the article: Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy speaks with
* Lisa Carney Anderson and Kathleen Fagerlund, authors of a two-part series on perioperative medication withholding in patients with Parkinson's disease.
* Rebecca Matthews and Andrea Moore, authors of the In Our Community article, “Babies Are Still Dying of SIDS,” along with Matthews's husband (and Moore's pediatrician), David Matthews.
