This issue of American Nurse Today features an article on adolescent nonsuicidal self-injury. Did you know that the prevalence for this coping behavior is 18%? Young people self-injure as a way to deal with the feelings of frustration, helplessness, and anger that accompany all of the stress they experience at home, in school, and other social environments. Using the screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (SBIRT) method, nurses can help identify and support patients they suspect may be self-injuring. Read this article to learn more about how you can help your young patients. Other topics covered this month include venous thromboembolism (for CNE), hypoglycemia, and the use of nutrition and activity tracking apps for adolescent weight loss.
