AJN The American Journal of Nursing September 2016, Volume 116, 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. On this month’s cover, U.S. Army generals attend the commencement ceremony for the annual observance of Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month at the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia. Our first CE, “Original Research: Predicting Injurious Falls in the Hospital Setting: Implications for Practice,” discusses a retrospective study that analyzed which patient factors are associated with injurious falls in hospitalized adults. In our second CE, “Military Sexual Trauma in Male Service Members,” the authors examine the unique ways in which men experience military sexual trauma, and explore the influence of stereotypes of masculinity, myths surrounding sexual assault, and military culture and structure on victims. Our next article, “Recognizing Myocardial Infarction in Women: A Case Study,” provides an overview of the signs and symptoms of myocardial infarction in women and highlights how the failure to recognize them in the case of one woman led to misdiagnosis and could have resulted in death. In “Legal Clinic: Legal Considerations in Telehealth and Telemedicine,” the author examines the legal and regulatory considerations surrounding the rapidly growing practice of remote health care delivery. In addition, there’s News, Reflections, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
