AJN The American Journal of Nursing January 2017, Volume 117, Issue 1;
Editor-in-Chief Shawn Kennedy and Clinical Editor Betsy Todd present the highlights of the January issue of the American Journal of Nursing. On this month’s cover, mothers and their children with the birth defect microcephaly—likely attributed to Zika virus—wait for care at Hospital Oswaldo Cruz in Recife, Brazil. Our first CE, “Triglycerides: Do They Matter?” discusses the importance of lowering triglyceride levels and reviews the lifestyle changes and pharmacologic treatments that can help achieve this goal. In our second CE, “Human Papillomavirus–Related Oral Cancers: The Nurse’s Role in Mitigating Stigma and Dispelling Myths,” the author describes the risk factors, clinical features, and treatment of human papillomavirus (HPV)–related oral cancers, and suggests ways for nurses to educate patients on and correct misconceptions about HPV transmission. Our next article, “Supporting Family Caregivers: Teaching Caregivers to Administer Eye Drops, Transdermal Patches, and Suppositories,” outlines techniques nurses can use to teach caregivers how to properly administer medications by variousroutes. In addition, there’s AJN’s 2016 Book of the Year Awards, News, Reflections, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
