This Month in AJN – February 2018 monthly highlights

February 2018

Editor-in-Chief Shawn Kennedy and Clinical Editor Betsy Todd present the highlights of the February issue of AJN. The authors of our first CE, “Original Research: Physical Activity Among Chinese American Immigrants with Prediabetes or Type 2 Diabetes,” describe a mixed-methods study that analyzed this population’s levels of exercise intensity and examined the types of activity performed, as well as the barriers to such activity. Our second CE, “Managing Sepsis and Septic Shock: Current Guidelines and Definitions,” discusses recent updates to the Surviving Sepsis Campaign’s sepsis treatment guidelines, changes in the sepsis bundle interventions, and the new definitions and predictive tools introduced in the Third International Consensus Definitions for Sepsis and Septic Shock. Our next article, “Moving Closer to the 2020 BSN-Prepared Workforce Goal,” report findings from the four-year Academic Progression in Nursing initiative to identify and develop the most promising strategies for creating a more highly educated nursing workforce. “Cultivating Quality: A Multidisciplinary QI Initiative to Improve OR–ICU Handovers” examines the impact of a standardized handover process on ensuring safe patient transfer between the OR and the ICU. In addition, there’s News, Reflections, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
