Dear AENJ Colleague,

As you know, the Advanced Emergency Nursing Journal seeks to promote high quality, evidence-based care. Therefore, this year, we will be adding two new columns. In addition to Research to Practice (Dian Evans-Column Editor), Imaging (Denise Ramponi-Column Editor), Applied Pharmacology (Kyle Weant-Column Editor) and Cases of Note (Kathleen Jordan-Column Editor), we will create a Procedures Column (Jennifer Wilbeck-Column Editor) and a Dermatology Column (Nicole Martinez-Column Editor). Watch for supplemental digital content in upcoming issues, especially in these columns! We also hope to offer more continuing education contact hours (CECH) in each issue as well.

In "A Cluster of Cases", we like to point out websites that are Exemplars of Excellence in Emergency Care, and a mini-anthology of postings from these reputable emergency care sources of exceptional value.

 

Here is a current article from Pediatric EM Morsels; from this article, alone, are links to many other topics of pediatric problems, and typically "adult: problems less-commonly found in kids. Yet, there is much more to be found, CME credit, and a PedEMMorsels App! Not to be missed!
