American Journal of Nursing announces 2008 Book of the Year Awards
Date:1/13/2009

New York, NY (January 13, 2009) The American Journal of Nursing (AJN) recognized the best nursing and healthcare publications of 2008 with an announcement today of its Book of the Year Award recipients. Winners in 15 separate categories appear in the journal's January issue. Many of the winning publications address a variety of controversial consumer health topics and nursing industry issues that span medical-surgical nursing, psychiatric-mental health nursing, maternal and child health, and other areas. AJN is the largest circulating nursing journal in the world published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, part of Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading provider of information and business intelligence for students, professionals and institutions in medicine, nursing, allied health, pharmacy and the pharmaceutical industry.

"AJN is committed to providing nursing and healthcare professionals and the public with cutting-edge information, grounded in credible science, and we are pleased to honor this year's award recipients," said Diana Mason, PhD, RN, FAAN and editor-in-chief of AJN. "Authors who cover new and informative material can dramatically improve the quality of life for nurses and the quality of care that patients receive."

This year's recipients covered a wide range of topics including:

  • Helping Teens Who Cut: Understanding and Ending Self-Injury, by Michael Hollander, which brings to light the serious and potentially devastating issue of self injury which affects the quality of life of teens and their parents. The author suggests interventions for families to use.
  • What Works for Bipolar Kids: Help and Hope for Parents, by Mani Pavuluri, takes an optimistic, evidence-based "how to" approach to help parents and children manage a bipolar child's behavior, understand medications and therapies and reduce family stress.
  • Safety in Numbers: Nurse-to-Patient Ratios and the Future of Health Care, by Suzanne Gordon, John Buchanan and Tanya Bretherton, includes a clear well-researched account about the struggles of nurses in California and Australia examining the many perspectives of the debate on nursepatient ratios. The book argues that improving working conditions for nurses is a vital step in addressing the international nursing shortage.
  • Nurse: A World of Care, by Peter Jaret, is a candid moving book of photographs and text depicting the wide range of the nurse's work and nurse-patient interactions.
  • Clinician's Guide to the Soul, by Veneta Masson, is a heartfelt and evocative collection of poems exploring the intensely personal side of nursing including patient interactions, health care interventions, illness and death.
