Sandra K Cesario
Medical tourism is an emerging industry that facilitates travel to another country for people who seek medical, surgical, or dental care that is unavailable or more affordable than in their home countries. Rapid advances in electronic communication and the ease of international travel have fueled the growth of this industry. More than half of medical travelers are women, especially for services related to cosmetic or reproductive conditions. Medical tourism creates both opportunities and challenges for nurses and other health care providers...

Heidi Collins Fantasia, Katherine M Vooys
Counterfeit medications are broadly defined as drugs that can contain inadequate amounts of active ingredients, contain the wrong active ingredients, be contaminated with harmful substances, and/or be falsely labeled. These medications are a public health issue globally, and their presence in the United States is growing. Counterfeit medications are produced without regulatory oversight and are distributed illegally, often via online sources. Use of these medications can result in adverse effects or a lack of improvement in a person's health condition...

Maria Ruud
Health care providers' knowledge about the health issues of individuals who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ) has increased in the past few years, but significant gaps still exist. Nurses and other clinicians may be unfamiliar with current concepts of sexual orientation and gender identity, as well as with current language and terminology. Health care settings that lack informed staff or have environments that are not inclusive can influence the quality of care delivered or whether care is pursued at all...

#6
Nancy Irland
Spontaneous newborn skull fracture is rarely cited in nursing literature as a potential outcome of persistent fetal occiput posterior position. Although most newborns seem unaffected by the condition initially, some may show symptoms several hours after the birth, when nursing assessments are less frequent. This case report illustrates delayed newborn symptoms that led to an unexpected diagnosis of spontaneous skull fracture.

To address an increase in unexpected poor outcomes in term neonates, our team developed a goal of high reliability and improved fetal safety in the culture of the Labor and Delivery nursing department. We implemented interdisciplinary reviews of fetal heart rate, along with a Category II fetal heart rate management algorithm and a fetal heart rate assessment rapid response alert to call for unscheduled reviews when needed. Enhanced communication between nurses and other clinicians supported an interdisciplinary approach to fetal safety, and we observed an improvement in health outcomes for term neonates...

REVIEW
Christina Tso, Wah Lee, Tammy Austin-Ketch, Harvey Winkler, Bruce Zitkus
Pelvic organ prolapse is a medical condition that can cause pelvic discomfort as well as urinary and bowel complications. Approximately 25% of women in the United States and roughly 50% of women worldwide develop this condition. Although pelvic organ prolapse is usually a non-life-threatening condition, it can result in decreased self-confidence and negative body image. Physical and emotional sequelae can limit physical activity, and decreased productivity could be a consequence. Evidence from the literature indicates that pessary use and pelvic floor muscle training are effective options when conservative treatment is desired...

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this quality improvement project was to plan and implement a daily family bonding time on our mother/baby care unit and evaluate its effect on interruptions, mothers' perceptions of interruptions, and exclusive breastfeeding rates. DESIGN: A separate sample pre-/postintervention design conducted in three phases. SETTING/LOCAL PROBLEM: Healthy breastfeeding newborns had double the odds of receiving supplementation before discharge if they stayed more than 1 night or were born at night...

Renece Waller-Wise
Nurses and doulas do not always have positive views of each other. When labor nurses face challenges in their ability to provide continuous labor support, one might believe that a doula would be welcomed, yet this is not always true. Conflicts can arise between nurses and doulas, often because of overlapping roles. However, an optimal health care system is one for which there is an integrated system that fosters collegial interprofessional collaboration. This commentary explores the role of doulas and the care they provide and describes strategies to promote collegial relationships between nurses and doulas...

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently updated the U.S. Selected Practice Recommendations for Contraceptive Use to foster a reduction in unplanned pregnancy rates and to provide clinicians an evidence-based guide for contraception management. Nurses play an important role in helping women and families with reproductive life planning. By bridging knowledge gaps and removing access barriers with regard to contraception, nurses can contribute to reducing rates of unintended pregnancy. Nurses and other clinicians are encouraged to use the U...

Recent advances in human papillomavirus (HPV) science have led to updates to national HPV vaccine recommendations. This column takes a second look at two recent studies that provide evidence to support the current two-dose HPV vaccination schedule for youth ages 9 to 14 years. This short review will help nurses and other clinicians understand the health and economic benefits of the current dosing recommendation. Nurses are leaders in national vaccination efforts; therefore, it is vital that they remain up to date on the latest evidence that supports vaccination practice as well as health counseling and HPV vaccine recommendations...

The Iraq and Afghanistan wars are unlike earlier wars, and the women veterans who have served in them are unlike veterans of earlier wars. Now these veterans are presenting with distinctive general, genitourinary, reproductive, and behavioral health issues. When seeking health care after deployment, they may be accessing multiple health care providers across numerous sites, including the Veterans Health Administration and civilian facilities. Enhanced levels of understanding, respect, and concern for the many combat-related health challenges experienced by these veterans will help civilian nurses and other clinicians provide optimum care...

REVIEW
Susan Liipfert Shelton, Shih-Yu Sylvia Lee
The birth of a child is a life transition that can signal an opportunity to promote wellness and self-care. Nurses and other health care providers can encourage women to engage in exercise for physical and mental health and to enhance weight loss after birth. However, incorporating an exercise routine into life with an infant can be challenging. Sixty-two women provided feedback about their exercise patterns before and during pregnancy, and 18 of these women gave additional insight into barriers to and facilitators of exercise engagement after childbirth...

Ann W Lambert, Laurie C Harris, Chih-Hsuan Wang, Shu-Wen Tzeng
The Tiger Babies Breastfeeding Support Tent was established by a baccalaureate nursing program in southeastern Alabama to increase community awareness of the importance of breastfeeding and to provide a clean, convenient, and private location for nursing mothers during community events. Local advertising was distributed before community events to promote awareness and support of the project. Survey results indicate that 80% of mothers who used the tent's services would recommend the tent to their friends and family members...

REVIEW
Lori J Hubbard, Elizabeth D'Andrea, Luke A Carman
To evaluate perinatal nursing care for Deaf women, we conducted a pilot, descriptive study exploring women's prenatal, labor, and postpartum experiences. We used the Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) framework to analyze women's responses and to explore implications for practice. Themes and women's stories are presented within the QSEN structure to promote informed and individualized perinatal nursing care for Deaf families. It is essential for nurses to stay abreast of resources and technological advances and to use culturally competent principles of communication...
