Resolve Through Sharing leaders awarded 'Book of the Year'

The American Journal of Nursing (AJN) recently announced its 2018 Book of the Year awards. Determined by AJN's panel of judges, these awards are given to texts the organization deems most valuable in a variety of categories.

'Guided Participation in Pediatric Nursing Practice: Relationship-Based Teaching and Learning with Parents, Children, and Adolescents' was awarded first place in the category of child health. The book was co-edited by Resolve through Sharing (RTS) director emerita Rana Limbo, PhD, RN, CPLC, FAAN. It also includes a chapter authored by her, as well as a chapter co-authored with RTS director Mary Beth Hensel. The book was selected as winner in its category by Ruth Lebet, PhD, RN, CCNS-P, PCNS-BC, nurse scientist, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. RTS is a program of Gundersen Medical Foundation.

Guided Participation, a dynamic process of teaching and learning, is a theory incorporated into RTS education and care standards, reflecting best practices in both. The RTS bereavement education curriculum design is theory-based, frequently updated with the latest research and backed by nearly 38 years of experience. This award highlights what sets RTS apart from its competitors.

This is the second AJN Book of the Year award for Dr. Limbo. In 2016, she took top honors in the palliative and hospice category as an author and co-editor of 'Perinatal and Pediatric Bereavement in Nursing and Other Health Professions.' Both award-winning books are published by Springer Publishing Company.
