AJN The American Journal of Nursing November 2016, Volume 116, Issue 11;
Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and Clinical Editor Betsy Todd present the highlights of the November issue of the American Journal of Nursing. This month’s cover photo of a nurse with a patient and her family member brings to mind an increasingly common experience for many Americans: being a family caregiver. Our first CE, “Preventing, Managing, and Assessing Skin Tears: A Clinical Review,” discusses best practices for preventing, assessing, documenting, and managing skin tears. In our second CE, “Veteran Women: Mental Health-Related Consequences of Military Service,” the author reviews research confirming that both active-duty and veteran women are at increased risk for postdeployment mental health problems, and also addresses the nursing practice implications, including screening. Our next article, “Supporting Family Caregivers: Managing Complex Medication Regimens” offers an overview of how nurses can provide medication management education to family caregivers of older adults. In “Cultivating Quality: An Evidenced-Based Sleep Program to Reduce Sudden Unexplained Infant Deaths,” the authors describe how a nurse-led clinical and educational safe sleep program in the neonatal ICU improved outcomes for infants and their families and caregivers. In addition, there’s News, Reflections, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
