As nurse leaders, we must communicate effectively on the first try. We don’t want our staff members asking themselves, “What did she say?”
When I started my first nursing leadership role, my dad gave me a little gift for my new office — a small desk sign with a message that read: “I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.”

Sept. 18 | 8:30 AM - 2:00 PM | La Plaza de Cultura y Artes | 501 N. Main Street, Los Angeles
Thanks to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), millions of women in California gained health care coverage and new coverage benefits and protections. California capitalized on healthcare reform implementation to enact policies that significantly expanded health access for women. The current political environment on the federal level has now put the progress we have made in advancing women’s access to essential health care at risk. State and local leaders and advocates must now work together to hold the line against federal threats to protect women’s access to coverage and care and to continue to push forward for women and families in Los Angeles County.
Register by Friday, Sept. 14.

Antibiotic, or antimicrobial, resistance occurs when bacteria or viruses — sometimes called superbugs — genetically mutate and become immune to drugs.
The World Health Organization (WHO) call the phenomenon "an increasingly serious threat to global public health that requires action across all government sectors and society."
New research has revealed that, contrary to traditional beliefs in the medical community, four- or five-drug combinations can be effective in treating infection with treatment-resistant bacteria.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued the first evidence-based clinical guideline in the United States for diagnosing and managing concussion or mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) from all causes in children.
The guidance includes 19 sets of recommendations on the diagnosis, prognosis, and management/treatment of pediatric mTBI.
WHO released recommendations regarding which medicines should be used for treatment intensification in adult patients with type 2 diabetes as well as the use of analogue or human insulin in type 1 and 2 diabetes.
Clinicians are the face of healthcare. We interface with patients, care for them, engage their families and we are a go-to resource in day-to-day treatment. This makes us great patient advocates as we partner with patients and families in their care.
An experimental single-dose flu drug shows promise as a new way to alleviate the misery of influenza, researchers say.
The drug — called baloxavir — worked better than no treatment in one phase of a new study. The study also found it as effective as the current standard drug, oseltamivir (Tamiflu), at controlling symptoms such as coughing, sore throat, headache, fever, muscle and joint pain, and fatigue.

In healthcare and nursing, employee turnover can have an outsized impact on staff morale, the financial bottom line, and the retention of organizational memory and knowledge. In the 21st century, healthcare staff come and go for a variety of reasons; that said, prudent and forward-thinking organizations work diligently and consistently to combat inordinately high levels of nurse attrition. The University of New Mexico reports that hospitals stand to lose $5.2 to $8.1 million annually in direct relation to nurse turnover.
You've just graduated from nursing school! You're excited to start your job at a hospital you really like, but there's just one thing — it says on the application that all new nurses will enter a nurse residency program for their first year of employment. Nurse residency? What does this mean?

Patients treated for overt hypothyroidism with the standard replacement therapy levothyroxine (LT4) often continue to show abnormal cholesterol levels despite normalization of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), according to a new meta-analysis recently published online in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.
From pain management and alarm fatigue to connecting with patient families, Critical Care Nursing Trends You Should Know, is a digital edition that provides you with essential tips and information on the specialty.
You won’t want to miss this exclusive edition — featuring articles on important topics, including moral distress — an issue that can have major impacts on a nurse’s health and career as he or she struggles to reconcile his or her own moral beliefs with that of patients’ families.
With the U.S. lurching toward a severe shortage of primary care physicians, nurse practitioners may be poised to fill the void - but only if more can be convinced to live in underserved areas and laws in some states loosen up, a new study suggests.
Researchers found that in California, where shortages of primary care physicians are starting to be felt, nurse practitioners more often reside in counties where there are already plenty of doctors, according to the report in Health Affairs.

A previous recommendation made by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force suggesting that all pregnant women receive screening for syphilis early in pregnancy has been reaffirmed. This guidance was rated with a grade A. The recommendation was made after a significant rise in congenital syphilis cases was reported in the U.S. According to the organization, rates declined between 2008 and 2012, but an 87 percent increase in the rate of cases occurred between 2012 and 2016.
