Enhancing Personhood in the Care of Older Adults with Dementia: A Biblical Perspective
ABSTRACT: Using a biblical worldview, this article develops a philosophical discussion about what comprises an individual's personhood. The author contends for the perspective of a person as a human being created in the image of God based on who he or she is, not on the basis of how well he or she functions. Understanding the biblical concept of personhood allows the establishment of meaningful relationships with people with dementia, resulting in compassionate, quality care.

Faith Community Nursing: Faith Element Enhances Cardiovascular Risk Reduction Program Outcomes
ABSTRACT: The high prevalence of hypertension among African Americans makes faith-based education programs culturally appropriate.

When Healthcare Isn't Enough: A Christian Response to Social Determinants of Health
ABSTRACT: Education, employment, housing, neighborhood safety, and traumatic life experiences influence people's health, and poor health as a result of inequities in these areas cannot be remedied by medical care alone. Although social determinants of health threaten the attainment of a healthy life for people across North America, nurses are positioned to be leaders in a movement toward health equity. Nurses can follow the example of Jesus in loving their neighbors as themselves by addressing the social needs of patients, championing health system change, educating their communities, and advocating for Health in All P...

Renovating an Overbusy Lifestyle: An Invitation to Rest
ABSTRACT: Nurses often juggle multiple roles and responsibilities that can result in an overfull life. An overwhelmed schedule can lead to unintentionally becoming distanced from Jesus. The author suggests that true self-care includes proper balance of one's spiritual life with God. Three interventions can rebalance an overwhelmed life: seeking regular quiet time with God, prayer discernment about schedule decisions, and recognizing contemplative moments each day.

Interprofessional Collaboration Improves Uptake of Flu Vaccines on a College Campus
ABSTRACT: In spite of an increased risk of transmission of influenza on college campuses, only 20% or fewer of college students in the United States receive the flu vaccine. This project evaluated an existing university program for flu vaccination, resulting in a collaboration pilot program in which a pharmacy conducted a mobile health clinic on campus. The percentage of students who obtained a flu vaccine from this initiative rose from about 4% to 9.46%, a 131% increase over the historical average. (Source: Journal of Christian Nursing)

Fertility Awareness-Based Methods for Family Planning: A Literature Review
ABSTRACT: A review of 23 research articles to examine fertility awareness-based methods revealed biologic indicators and tracking methods to identify the fertile window in reproductive-aged women. This literature review indicated that a woman's cycle regularity is a major determinant of which method is best. Additionally, the woman's desire to achieve a pregnancy and her preference regarding the intensity of training are factors in method choice. Some evidence suggests that use of at least two biologic indicators is most effective for determining the fertility window. Recommended web and mobile applications also are disc...
