This Month in AJN –  February 2019 monthly highlights

February 2019

Editor-in-chief Shawn Kennedy and clinical editor Betsy Todd present the highlights of the February issue of AJN. The authors of our first CE, “Original Research: Midlife Hypertension and Hypercholesterolemia in Relation to Cognitive Function Later in Life in Black Women,” sought to explore the relationship between two vascular risk factors in midlife—hypertension and hypercholesterolemia—and cognitive function later in life among black women. Our second CE, “Caring for Survivors of Hodgkin Lymphoma,” provides an overview of HL, the most common late effects of treatment, and current recommendations for survivor surveillance and screening. In our next article, “A Nurse-Driven Oral Care Protocol to Reduce Hospital-Acquired Pneumonia,” the authors describe a QI initiative to implement an oral care protocol in the adult in-patient care areas of a level 1 trauma hospital and evaluate its impact on the incidence of hospital-acquired pneumonia. “Integrating Peer Review into Nursing Practice” describes how clinical nurses developed and successfully incorporated a peer review program within a busy nursing unit, strengthening professional relationships and practice. In addition, there’s News, Reflections, Drug Watch, Art of Nursing, and more.
