AJN The American Journal of Nursing September 2017, Volume 117, Issue 9;
Editor-in-Chief Shawn Kennedy and Clinical Editor Betsy Todd present the highlights of the September issue of the American Journal of Nursing. Our first CE, “Original Research: The Experience of Transitioning to a Caregiving Role for a Family Member with Alzheimer’s Disease or Related Dementia,” explores the lived experiences of people who transitioned to the role of caregiver for a family member with Alzheimer’s disease or a related dementia. Our second CE, “Can Your Older Patients Drive Safely?,” discusses driving risks associated with advanced age, focusing on the behaviors and situations that put older drivers at greatest risk, as well as the key indicators of an older patient’s ability to drive safely. In our next article, “Emerging Infections: Six Things You Can Do Today to Prevent Hospital-Onset C. difficile Tomorrow,” the author suggests six changes to make in your practice to prevent transmission of this common bacterial infection. In “Legal Clinic: Lessons Learned from Litigation: Legal and Ethical Consequences of Social Media,” AJN’s legal and ethical contributing editors offer insight on the issues raised by a case in which a Canadian nurse’s Facebook post complaining about a family member’s medical care resulted in disciplinary action by the licensing board. In addition, there’s Perspectives on Palliative Nursing, News, Reflections, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
