AJN The American Journal of Nursing October 2017, Volume 117, Issue 10;
Editor-in-Chief Shawn Kennedy and Clinical Editor Betsy Todd present the highlights of the October issue of AJN. Our first CE, “Original Research: Exploring How Nursing Schools Handle Student Errors and Near Misses,” investigates nursing school policies and practices for reporting and tracking student errors and near misses. Our second CE, “Assessing Patients During Septic Shock Resuscitation,” discusses how to integrate capillary refill time and skin mottling score into the perfusion reassessment after initial fluid resuscitation—as recommended by revisions to the Surviving Sepsis Campaign six-hour bundle. Our next article, “Sexually Speaking: Obesity and Sexual Dysfunction: Making the Connection,” reviews the evidence on obesity and sexual functioning, plus nursing considerations for addressing weight-loss strategies with patients. The author of “Question of Practice: Workarounds Are Routinely Used by Nurses—But Are They Ethical?” discusses how nurses can be creative problem solvers without resorting to workarounds that may be ethical in intent yet potentially harmful in their consequences. In addition, there’s News, Reflections, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
