Dr. Blackwell’s Work to be Published in the Journal for Nurse Practitioners

Filed under: Nursing Science — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 21:52

Dr. Blackwell original article, “Application of CDC’s Isolation Directives for Patients Exposed to SARS-CoV-2” has been accepted for publication in JNP–The Journal for Nurse Practitioners. The article explores the most up-to-date isolation recommendations for patient exposed to SARS-CoV-2 who test positive and remain asymptomatic and those who test positive and develop symptoms. The work will appear in the journal in the forthcoming months. The abstract for the article appears below:

SARS-CoV-2 infection and COVID-19 disease remain an ongoing public health concern. While directives are subject to change, nurse practitioners (NPs) must have a strong working knowledge of COVID-19 precaution and isolation directives to counsel patients on proper implementation of precaution and isolation strategies. This article informs clinicians regarding: 1) some inputs that inform the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) COVID-19 isolation directives; 2) review of most recent directives to symptomatic and asymptomatic patients testing positive for SARS-CoV-2; 3) use of CDC COVID-19 Isolation & Exposure Calculator; and 4) NP role in guiding future research and public health initiatives.
