From the Editor
As we move into fall and the start of school, it's a great time for our readers to use JNN's content for their own learning, their patients' learning, or, for those of you who teach, your students' learning. Collections of content-specific articles have been created; you can also use Power Point slides, email features, and search features to aid in the process. This is also a good time of year to think about writing and/or reviewing. Both of these activities provide you with a way to "give back" and grow professionally. We can provide guidance and mentoring for either. Just send me an email.

In the News
News you can use .... The August 27th issue of The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) includes a look at shifting vaccination policies in one of the most populous states in the US. California legislators have passed legislation that ends person-belief exemptions to childhood vaccines in that state. This follows the outbreak of measles - a disease with potentially catastrophic neurologic sequalae - in the state in 2014 and earlier this year. It's an interesting examination of how public health policy can shift quickly. An earlier issue of NEJM (8/6/15) included a review of a clinical trial designed to test efficacy of a reversal agent for dabigatran. The lack of reversal agents for NOACs has been a concern for prescribers, nurses and their patients. Continued news about kids and concussions ... the New York Times (8/25/15) reports on the rise of head injuries in children who actively play sports. Perhaps the most insightful part of the article is the author's assertion that calling concussions by their "real" name - mild traumatic brain injuries - would increase understanding of the potential harm related to these and push all of us to do better preventive education.
