Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and clinical managing editor Karen Roush present the highlights of the August 2012 issue of the American Journal of Nursing. This month offers two CE features: one is original research describing the experiences of adolescents in an Australian inpatient behavioral program for the treatment of anorexia and how both nurses and patients’ perceptions of the program as a metaphoric prison hinders therapeutic relationships. The second CE feature begins a three-part series exploring the push for health information technology and it uses and effects on nursing. Other features include a quality improvement project implementing CE for patient care technicians, evidence-based management of acute infectious diarrhea, a historical piece from a male nurse who graduated in 1929, the story of how Korean nurses in New England joined together to increase access to care for their community, and a profile of a nurse who will be an Olympic torch carrier. And of course there’s News, an AJN Reports on controversies around patient satisfaction surveys, Drug Watch, Journal Watch, Art of Nursing, and Reflections, “ In the News”, and more. You can listen to podcast interviews with the authors of the QI project.
