About Off the Charts
Off the Charts is the blog of the American Journal of Nursing (AJN). Posts by AJN editors and contributing editors, policy leaders, patients, and working nurses highlight what’s most interesting, troubling, important, and provocative in nursing and health care. Views expressed on the blog are solely those of the authors or persons quoted. They do not necessarily reflect AJN‘s views or those of Lippincott Williams and Wilkins or Wolters Kluwer Health.
Please note that AJN is an evidence-based, peer-reviewed journal with a rigorous financial disclosure policy. We do not as a rule endorse or promote individual products in the journal or on this blog, and will not respond to solicitations from marketing firms hired to promote such products. Nor will we link to Web sites or blogs that exist solely to capture Web traffic for commercial reasons rather than to improve the quality and integrity of health care for both nurses and patients.
