Patricia Keresztes, Annette Peacock-Johnson
A review of established and newer agents, as well as combination therapies, used to treat this prevalent condition. ABSTRACT: Of the more than 30 million Americans who have diabetes mellitus, as many as 95% have type 2 diabetes. While interventions for type 2 diabetes include modifying diet and exercise, pharmacologic therapy is a mainstay in diabetes treatment. In recent years, with the addition of new medications and medication classifications, pharmacologic therapy for type 2 diabetes has changed dramatically...

Study findings support targeted interventions that facilitate early recognition and appropriate action. ABSTRACT: Background: When older adults with cognitive impairment develop new physical or behavioral symptoms, their family caregivers face a difficult decision: whether and when to seek professional medical care. Most family caregivers lack formal training in assessment and may have difficulty making such decisions. The Veterans Health Administration's home-based primary care (HBPC) program, which is widely available, offers community-dwelling frail veterans and their family caregivers guidance, with the goal of reducing hospitalization and institutionalization in long-term care facilities...

An evidence-based review of common late effects of HL treatment. ABSTRACT: Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) is a highly curable cancer. Advances in diagnosis and treatment have resulted in excellent cure rates, producing an ever-increasing number of HL survivors who live decades beyond their initial cancer treatment. These survivors, however, are at risk for late effects secondary to the cancer treatments they received years earlier, most notably, subsequent primary cancers, cardiovascular disease, pulmonary toxicity, and endocrine dysfunction...

Trends suggest associations that warrant further investigation. ABSTRACT: Purpose: This study sought to evaluate midlife hypertension and hypercholesterolemia in relation to cognitive function later in life among black women. METHODS: Participants were drawn from the Nurses' Health Study and the Women's Health Study databases. In these studies, health professionals reported health information by questionnaire at baseline and at regular follow-up intervals, including diagnoses of hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, or both; and they completed telephone-based cognitive assessments later in life...

Findings from this cross-sectional study indicate a need for expanded training in safe handling practices. ABSTRACT: Background: Many antineoplastic (chemotherapeutic) drugs are known or probable human carcinogens, and many have been shown to be reproductive toxicants in cancer patients. Evidence from occupational exposure studies suggests that health care workers who have long-term, low-level occupational exposure to antineoplastic drugs have an increased risk of adverse reproductive outcomes...

: Editor's note: From its first issue in 1900 through to the present day, AJN has unparalleled archives detailing nurses' work and lives over more than a century. These articles not only chronicle nursing's growth as a profession within the context of the events of the day, but they also reveal prevailing societal attitudes about women, health care, and human rights. Today's nursing school curricula rarely include nursing's history, but it's a history worth knowing. To this end, From the AJN Archives highlights articles selected to fit today's topics and times...

: Purpose: The purpose of this evidence-based quality improvement (QI) project was to implement an oral care protocol in the adult in-patient care areas of a level 1 trauma hospital and to evaluate its impact on the incidence of hospital-acquired pneumonia (HAP). METHODS: A standardized, evidence-based oral care protocol was implemented depending on the level of care required by each ventilated, at-risk, or short-term care patient. The QI project included the introduction of a new suction toothbrush kit for at-risk patients and, for short-term patients, a new short-term oral care kit that featured a more ergonomically appropriate toothbrush, a baking soda toothpaste, and an alcohol-free antiseptic mouthwash; the project also supported the continued use of the then current suction toothbrush kit for patients receiving mechanical ventilation...
