Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and Clinical Editor Betsy Todd present the highlights of the June issue of the American Journal of Nursing. This month’s cover shows nurses at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute practicing mindfulness in a healing garden. Our first CE, “Early Percutaneous Endoscopic Gastrostomy Tube Dislodgment,” presents a real case of PEG tube dislodgement and subsequent sepsis leading to the patient’s death. Our second CE, “Epilepsy Update Part 2: Nursing Care and Evidence-Based Treatment,” addresses the most important aspects of assessing and caring for patients with epilepsy. The feature article “Cultivating Quality: Cultivating Mindfulness to Enhance Nursing Practice” describes a multifaceted mindfulness program introduced for members of a nursing team. And our “Culturally Competent Care: Using the ESFT Model in Nursing” article discusses the need for nurses to communicate effectively with diverse populations and how health care disparities can be reduced through culturally competent care. In addition, there’s News, Reflections, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
