Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and clinical editor Betsy Todd present the highlights of the October issue of AJN. Our first CE, “The Use of Resuscitative Endovascular Balloon Occlusion of the Aorta in Treating Hemorrhagic Shock from Severe Trauma,” outlines this new tool, describes its evolution, and discusses various considerations, pitfalls, and nursing implications. Our second CE, “Acute Pain Management for People with Opioid Use Disorder,” discusses how to manage acute pain effectively in patients receiving medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorder, which incorporates methadone, buprenorphine, or naltrexone. The authors of our next article, “Original Research: Journalists’ Experiences with Using Nurses as Sources in Health News Stories,” interviewed health journalists to better understand their perceptions of the barriers and facilitators to using nurses as sources. “Workplace Violence Training Using Simulation” describes how an interdisciplinary team at an Ohio health system developed a training program to address workplace violence, which included classroom learning, simulation training for active shooters, and hands-on self-defense techniques. In addition, there’s News, Reflections, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.

This video shows the first of the four simulation scenarios in Summa Health System’s workplace training program. This “nursing unit” includes one patient room in the foreground, the nurses’ station (a table with chairs) directly across from it, and two more patient rooms on the right. In this scene, staff respond to a visitor’s escalating violent behavior. After the simulation, students complete a self-assessment to establish their performance baseline.
