Clinical Spotlight on Acne Vulgaris/Rosacea (JDNA – Summer 2015)
The identification, management and treatment of both acne vulgaris and acne rosacea continue to be of clinical significance to those involved in the care of dermatology patients. This Clinical Spotlight will be focused on presenting dermatology nurses of various levels of academic preparation and practice environments with a comprehensive and up-to-date review of acne vulgaris and acne rosacea, including diagnosis, management, social and clinical considerations for treatment, as well as reviewing the standards of care, including pharmacological interventions, for our patients. Articles that contain clear and relevant figures and photographs and/or include a special focus on the dermatology nurses’ role in helping patients with these disease states will be especially welcome.
Literature reviews including systematic forms of literature review; discussion papers; qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods research reports; or papers debating issues of prevention and/or early intervention policy, practice or research will be included.
Papers from research nurses, physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, registered nurses, LPN’s, medical assistants, and students are welcomed and encouraged.
Manuscript submissions are invited by the submission deadline, observing the Author Guidelines as outlined at: http://www.editorialmanager.com/jdna/default.asp and http://journals.lww.com/jdnaonline/pages/default.aspx
All papers will undergo a double-blind peer review process. It is the intention for this Clinical Spotlight to be mailed with the regular issue of the Journal of the Dermatology Nurses’ Association Issue 7.5, September/October 2015.
Manuscripts Due: March 1, 2015 to the JDNA’s Managing Editor: firstname.lastname@example.org to be uploaded for peer review.
