Announcement: PLIDA Members Published in National Journal

Congratulations to Rana Limbo, PhD, and Marie Walter, RN, who were recently published in MCN, The American Journal of Maternal/Child Nursing.

Rana, PhD, RN, CPLC, FAAN, is senior consultant and associate director of Resolve Through Sharing (RTS). Rana is the past president of PLIDA.

Marie, MS, RN, C-EFM, CPLC, is lead educator and advance practice nurse, RTS. Marie is a PLIDA member, and an IPBC 2018 preconference and concurrent presenter.

Marie’s co-authored contribution, “Clinical Aspects of Miscarriage” and Dr. Limbo’s co-authored contribution, “Respectful Disposition after Miscarriage: Clinical Practice Recommendations” appear in the January-February special topics series on miscarriage.

“Marie’s article on the clinical aspects of miscarriage was selected to be published ahead of print,” Dr. Limbo says. “Additionally, the article was selected for reader continuing education credit.”

Dr. Limbo’s article was also selected to be published ahead of print. Additionally, she served as the guest editor, publishing an editorial titled “Miscarriage.” These things highlight the contribution Resolve Through Sharing® (RTS) makes to the professional world, affecting practice and patient experience far and wide.

While perinatal loss through miscarriage has been a central component of RTS education since its beginning in 1981, national and international attention to the impact of these losses and the need to improve care standards has recently been elevated. It is estimated that 777,000 miscarriages occur in the U.S. each year. Seen as a leader on the bereavement education front, RTS has responded by creating a miscarriage-specific educational opportunity that can serve as a stand-alone or complement to its existing trainings.

“These scholarly articles are especially important as RTS has recently launched a miscarriage-focused initiative we call It’s Never Too Early™ (INTE),” says RTS director Mary Beth Hensel, MBA. “It was premiered at our annual La Crosse National Training event last summer. We have been working with a Gundersen taskforce to review bereavement standards systemwide to identify gaps in care. Miscarriage, particularly occurring in the emergency department, has been flagged as an area where patients would benefit from an expanded application of RTS practice standards.”
