American Nurse Today Journal: clinical, peer-reviewed, trusted.

January 2019 Vol. 14 No. 1

January 2019 Vol. 14 No. 1

Happy 2019! This first issue of the new year features some articles that are top of mind for many nurses. Our continuing nursing education article provides detailed information about medication-assisted treatment for opioid use disorder, including about specific medications and protocols related to nurse practitioner care. Another topic that needs to be brought to nurses’ attention is the emerging threat of Candida auris, a difficult to identify and treat infection. And three articles come from Magnet-recognized organizations. The authors share stories of evidence-based practice implementation on several topics—peripheral IV rotation, near-peer mentoring, and oral cancer treatment tracking. Other articles cover verbal de-escalation techniques for dealing with violent patients and family members, tips for transitioning from a clinical nurse to leadership role, and how to know whether you’re the bully at work (and what you can do to fix that).

Pressure Injury Supplement

Special Report Sponsored by Dabir

Throughout acute care—from the emergency department to the operating room and the critical-care unit—protecting patients’ skin from pressure injuries (PIs) can sometimes be low on the priority list when faced with immediate life-threatening situations. However, PIs can become life-threatening and most are avoidable when excellent assessment, physical care, multidisciplinary teamwork, and technology are used to ensure adequate perfusion. In this special supplement to American Nurse Today, you’ll find best practices related to specific acute-care environments and insight into clinical solutions such as support surfaces, technology, and collaborative care. You’ll also want to read the case studies from nurses who have developed and implemented PI prevention strategies in their acute-care settings.
