This Month in AJN –  September 2018 monthly highlights

September 2018

Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and clinical editor Betsy Todd present the highlights of the September issue of AJN. Our first CE, “Too Much Sitting: A Newly Recognized Health Risk,” examines compelling evidence that overall daily sitting time—regardless of whether a person engages in moderate-to-vigorous physical activity—may be an independent health risk for cardiometabolic health conditions, certain cancers, and all-cause mortality. Our second CE, “Managing Stable COPD: An Evidence-Based Approach,” describes chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) risk factors, clinical manifestations, and diagnostic testing, and discusses how to put the revised Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease recommendations into practice. In our next article, “Responding to Mass Shootings: Are Hospitals—and Nurses—Fully Prepared?,” nurses and physicians who have experienced mass shootings firsthand discuss the importance of disaster planning. “Mental Health Matters: Antidepressant Medications” provides a brief overview of the indications for use, adverse effects, and nursing considerations related to antidepressants. In addition, there’s News, Reflections, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
