​Dear Nurse Leaders,

The July/August issue of JONA is our annual combined edition. As I surveyed the articles in this edition of JONA, it struck me that many of the articles have implications for finance. Cross-continuum care continuity, instituting safe work practices and an innovative model of an academic/service partnership in a rural setting are just a few examples.

Authors led by Carol Boston-Fleischhauer document a case study of a chronic care model. The authors pose the question: "Do we really ever discharge patients anymore?" As I read this article, it occurred to me that this paradigm shift supports the wellness continuum we are expected to promote and is a truly patient focused approach. Outcomes of the Model are included in the article.

Stress has been documented as a contributing factor related to turnover. In "Decreasing Stress and Burnout in Nurses:Efficacy of Blended Learning With Stress Management and Resilience Training" the authors report findings of teaching mindfulness and resiliency to a group of nurses. Outcomes include decreases in anxiety, stress and burnout.

Dr. Soo-Jeong Lee and her co-author, Joung Hee Lee report the outcomes of a study evaluating the association between occupational safety practices with physical workload and work-related injuries among hospital nurses. The study reported higher perceptions of safety practices were significantly associated with lower job strain, lower work-related injuries and lower work-load.

Melora Ferren, MSN, RN-BC, the Social Media Coordinator for JONA is posts a topic weekly on Twitter highlighting a topic from the journal. The Twitter address for JONA is #JONANurseLeader.
