Autism Spectrum Disorder

Susan A. Bonis, PhD, RN

Introduction (Excerpt)

One in every 68 children in the United States are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) (Baio, 2014; Childstats, 2015). Most parents of these children measure higher levels of stress, anxiety and depression than other groups of parents (Bitsika, Sharpley, & Bell, 2013). This stress affects their ability to parent effectively, manage their child’s care, and maintain the parent partnership (Ludlow, Skelly, & Rohleder, 2011; Myers, Mackintosh, &Goin-Kochel, 2009).

Eating Disorders

Angela J. Kinstler, MSN, RN, CNL

Introduction (Excerpt)

Eating disorders are complex psychological diseases where individuals’ eating behaviors can interfere severely with their social, emotional and physical well-being. Eating disorders affect several million people a year, typically women ages of 12 and 35, and can occur with other psychiatric disorders like anxiety, panic and obsessive compulsive disorders (American Psychiatric Association, 2017). When patients with eating disorders present for clinical assessment, they are typically unaware that their eating behaviors have caused them harm. Patients with anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa are often overly focused on the fear of gaining weight which can lead to anxiety.

Specialty Book, Suicide.jpg

Suicide Prevention

Tracy C. Brennan, BSN, RN-BC

Introduction (Excerpt)

Not all people who attempt to kill themselves die, nor are all people who self-harm trying to kill themselves. Suicide is purposeful, self-directed, harmful behavior by a person of any age that results in death. When an individual’s behavior is carried out with the intention to die but does not result in death, it is identified as a suicide attempt. Suicidal ideation, on the other hand, consists of thinking about suicide and potentially developing a plan (National Institute of Mental Health, 2017). In a variety of healthcare settings, nurses care for people who need to be kept safe from harming themselves, have sustained injuries or developed health problems as a result of a suicide attempt. Often, a nurse is the last healthcare professional a patient or family interacts with prior to discharge. Nursing education is crucial to equip patients and families with knowledge, resources and skills to prevent suicide.

Respite Care for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs

Melissa Leisen, MSN, RN; Eric Schmucker; Lisa Schneider

Introduction (Excerpt)

One in five households in the United States cares for a child or youth with special healthcare needs (CYSHCN) (HRSA, 2018). With this high prevalence, nurses working in a variety of settings regardless of specialty area are certain to encounter CYSHCN and their caregivers (Whitmore, 2017). When providing nursing care for a child with special needs, the focus is, rightly so, on the child. However, a key component to helping that child’s health, safety, and development is the physical, emotional, and mental health of the child’s entire familial unit.
