GLASS HALF-EMPTY

Increased drinking among older adult women who are especially vulnerable to alcohol-related health risks speaks volumes about the job cut out for care providers. Nancy Goldstein, DNP, ANP-BC; Nancy Hodgson, PhD, RN, FAAN; Christine Savage, PhD, RN, CARN, FAAN; and Benita Walton-Moss, PhD, FNP-BC, report in “Alcohol Use and the Older Adult Woman” that symptoms among at-risk women can be mistaken for age-related conditions: “A problem with balance may be attributed to frailty … confusion or memory changes may be attributed to a dementia syndrome.” A key to preventing further harm is to provide advanced practice nurses with a practical guide to the evidence-based approach SBIRT (for Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment) to help patients identify at-risk alcohol use and motivate a change.

POWER OF TRUST

“The effects of intimate partner violence (IPV) on maternal and neonatal outcomes are multifaceted and largely preventable,” Jeanne Alhusen, PhD, CRNP, RNEllen Ray, DNP, CNMPhyllis Sharps, PhD, RN, FAAN and a colleague report in “Intimate Partner Violence During Pregnancy: Maternal and Neonatal Outcomes.” But it takes trust between patient and provider. “The approach of universal screening, patient engagement in prenatal care, and targeted individualized interventions has the ability to reduce the adverse effects of IPV.” Too-likely alternatives are poor nutrition, inadequate weight gain, substance use, and depression for a mother-to-be as well as low birth weight, preterm birth, or maternal or neonatal death.

HIV and the Church icon

HIV AND THE CHURCH

African Americans’ faith in churches and their leaders can be a key toward addressing disparate HIV incidence and prevalence rates among the ethnic group, according to “A Multi-Level Approach for Promoting HIV Testing Within African American Church Settings.” The study by Jennifer Stewart, PhD, RN, points to inroads with religious leadership as a way to enlist a varied group of churches that has been “a venue for several effective health-related behavior change interventions” but has historically “framed HIV infection as a moral rather than a health issue.” Stewart looks for ways to break down barriers, increase testing, and lessen the stigma of HIV within the community.
