Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and Clinical Editor Betsy Todd present the highlights of the November issue of the American Journal of Nursing. This month’s cover features the third-place winner of AJN’s 2015 Faces of Caring: Nurses at Work contest, depicting a nurse caring for a patient at Clearview Cancer Institute in Huntsville, Alabama. Our first CE, “Adverse Late and Long-Term Treatment Effects in Adult Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant Survivors,” summarizes the identification, evaluation, and management of potential treatment-related effects in adult survivors of hematopoietic stem cell transplants. Our second CE, “Imagery for Self-Healing and Integrative Nursing Practice,” describes how imagery can be used to encourage patients’ healing process, and presents an imagery technique and a sample script to use in practice. In “Prescription Opioid Analgesics: Promoting Patient Safety with Better Patient Education,” the author uses a case study to examine the risks of nonmedical opioid use in postoperative patients and highlights the nurses’ role in patient education to avoid adverse outcomes. Finally, “Preventing Newborn Falls While Supporting Family Bonding” addresses the circumstances behind newborn falls in hospitals when infants are in the care of family members, and reports on steps hospitals are taking to effectively prevent these accidents. In addition, there’s News, Reflections, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
