The American Association of Neuroscience Nurses (AANN) celebrates 45th Annual Educational Meeting

Philadelphia PA (March 7, 2013) The American Association of Neuroscience Nurses (AANN) will celebrate its 45th Annual Education Conference designed to help neuroscience nurses explore the critical, evidence-based information of its specialty to support a wide range of patient conditions. In recognition of the field's advances over the past 45 years, AANN's official research publication, the Journal of Neuroscience Nursing (JNN), will introduce an iPad app edition at the meeting. The AANN Annual Educational Meeting takes place March 9-12 in Charlotte, North Carolina. JNN is published by Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, a part of Wolters Kluwer Health.

"Digital access is part of our future and is increasingly how our members and practitioners want to access the Journal," said V. Susan Carroll, MS, RN-BC, Editor of the JNN. "We are pleased to launch the Journal app during our annual meeting, reinforcing our focus to make the JNN even more accessible to nurses and practitioners in today's demanding, quickly-changing field."

AANN's 45th Annual Educational Meeting theme Listen, Learn, Lead is designed to explore the critical information of the specialty, which encompasses nursing care for patients suffering a wide range of conditions, including strokes, dementia, brain trauma and injuries, and neurological diseases. This aligns with the JNN's focus to provide research and information that is directly applicable to neuroscience nursing practice, as evidenced in the March/April issue.

For example, State of the Science: Use of Biomarkers and Imaging in Diagnosis and Management of Alzheimer Disease by Dierdre Brett Faller explores recent techniques that may soon allow a clinical diagnosis before the disease progresses to the point where symptoms become evident - when the benefits of treatment are limited. While still in the research stages, new methods to determine the disease's pathology at earlier stages have the potential for an immense impact in clinical diagnosis and management. For neuroscience nurses, this important research is key to putting the techniques into practice as they become more widely available, and being able to discuss them with patients and their families.

Neurological and Psychiatric Diseases and Their Unique Cognitive Profiles: Implications for Nursing Practice and Research by David E. Vance, Joan E. Dodson, Jason Watkins, Bridgett H. Kennedy, and Norman L. Keltner, highlights the distinct 'cognitive profiles' of neurological and psychiatric diseases which include bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, post-traumatic stress syndrome, depression, and anxiety disorders. Knowledge of how these diseases impact a patient's cognitive function and ability to interact in society helps nurses determine how well the patient may be able to manage important aspects of their care regimen, such as remembering to make appointments or take medications. Overall, this understanding will help nurses provide the best care, tailored to the individual patient's needs.

"Both articles have a strong research and new practice implications focus," says Carroll. "They directly reflect the quality content in the JNN, and show how the Journal is positioned to help every nurse provide the best patient care."

JNN for the iPad is Convenient, Accessible
The March/April issue of the JNN is now available as a free download in the iTunes App Store.
