This Month in AJN – November 2018 monthly highlights

November 2018

Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and clinical editor Betsy Todd present the highlights of the November issue of AJN. Our first CE, “Original Research: Patient Handling and Mobility Course Content: A National Survey of Nursing Programs,” examines what nursing programs teach students about lifting, turning, transferring, repositioning, and mobilizing patients. Our second CE, “How to Predict Pediatric Pressure Injury Risk with the Braden QD Scale,” offers guidance on use of the Braden QD Scale—a pediatric risk assessment instrument that reliably predicts both immobility-related and medical device–related pressure injuries. The author of our next article, “Looking Back: Nurses Fight for the Right to Vote,” shares the stories of four nurses suffragists—Lavinia Lloyd Dock, Mary Bartlett Dixon, Sarah Tarleton Colvin, and Hattie Frances Kruger—who were arrested for their involvement in the women’s suffrage movement. “Cultivating Quality: The Integrative Therapy Nurse: A Valuable Player in Symptom Management,” written by an RN with board certification in therapeutic massage and bodywork, describes how she implemented an integrative therapy initiative on the spinal cord injury and disorders unit at a Veterans Affairs medical center that resulted in decreased pain and increased relaxation among the veterans who participated. In addition, there’s News, Reflections, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
