Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and clinical editor Christine Moffa present the highlights of the February issue, which features two CE articles: one on recognizing and safely intervening in human trafficking and the other is original research on comparing the effectiveness of buffered lidocaine with bacteriostatic normal saline for local anesthesia prior to IV catheterization. Other articles include Managing Pediatric Asthma in the ED, Atrial Fibrillation Ablation, and another installment in our series of missives, Letters from Afghanistan and of course, News, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and Reflections. There’s also a podcast with Donna Sabella, author of Combating Human Trafficking.

Through her work in a mental health clinic and trafficked victims she saw there, Donna Sabella became aware that few health care providers recognized the signs that a patient seeking help was a victim of sex or labor trafficking, and if they did, few knew how to proceed in a manner that protected their patients and themselves. Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy, along with AJN’s Sylvia Foley, discuss the issues with author Sabella, including the growing problem in the United States, and how nurses can help.

AJN's editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy caught-up with Mary Stachowiak, president of the fledgling Clinical Nurse Leader Association (CNLA), in Miami on January 21 at the 2011 CNL Summit. They discussed the fairly new role of the CNL and how these "advanced generalists" work alongside clinical nurse specialists and nurse managers.
