August 2010 – Episode 21
Interim editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and clinical editor Christine Moffa present the highlights of the August issue of the American Journal of Nursing, including a CE feature on original research around parents and children who have cystic fibrosis, an article on the dangers discarded unused medications cause to the environment and what some nurses did in their communities to call attention to this; a report of a QI project on how a nurse-managed program reduced urinary catheter-associated infections; a piece on how to help new parents deal with changes in sexuality and two articles on nursing history: one about the little-known nurse who co-founded The Henry Street Settlement with Lillian Wald and a reprint of an article from AJN’s archives.
