This Month in AJN – April 2019 monthly highlights

April 2019

Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and clinical editor Betsy Todd present the highlights of the April issue of AJN. In our first CE, “Errors in Postoperative Administration of Intravenous Patient-Controlled Analgesia: A Retrospective Study,” the authors describe and analyze the errors associated with the use of IV patient-controlled analgesia at a large medical center in South Korea. Our second CE, “A Historical Review of Nurse–Physician Bedside Rounding,” discusses how the nurse’s role in bedside rounding has evolved since the 19th century. The authors of our next article, “Sustaining Nursing Grand Rounds Through Interdisciplinary Teamwork and Interorganizational Partnership,” present the implementation of a grand rounds program at their naval hospital, and demonstrate how nursing grand rounds can support professional growth and strengthen partnerships. “EBP 2.0: Implementing and Sustaining Change: From Strategy to Implementation” introduces a new series focused on the most challenging of the seven EBP steps—implementation. “Nurses and Climate Action” discusses the health sector’s responsibility to address climate change and nurses’ role in these efforts. In addition, there’s News, Reflections, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
