Home Healthcare Nurse is a refereed journal, published 10 times/year. In January 2015 the title of the journal will change to Home Healthcare Now to reflect the interprofessional nature of home healthcare. The goal of the journal is to bring up-to-date and practical articles to home healthcare and hospice providers. Topics include practice-oriented clinical topics, literature reviews, manuscripts that describe quality improvement projects, innovations or new approaches to patient care, and case studies. Some clinical topics of interest are (but not limited to): MS, ALS, diverticulitis, Lyme disease, smoking cessation, gut microbes, osteoporosis, Parkinsons, reflux esophagitis, COPD, fibromyalagia, post-polio syndrome and complementary treatments.
Home Healthcare Nurse is also seeking submissions for a column titled “A Day in the Life of…” The purpose of this column is to introduce readers to the wide variety of roles in home healthcare, and to highlight the typical work day of home care clinicians around the country and world to educate the readers on the work they do, the area in which they work and the people they serve. Manuscripts should be 600-1000 words. Prospective writers should feel free to email me with their ideas at HHNEditor@gmail.com
