  • Castner J, Huntington-Moskos L, May A. Generating Data Visualizations of Longitudinal Cohort Ambient Air Pollution Exposure: Report-Back Intervention Development in Participatory Action Research. Comput Inform Nurs. 2021 Aug 18. doi: 10.1097/CIN.0000000000000821. Epub ahead of print. PMID: 34412083. 
    Impact Statement: This work discusses the intentional use of data visualizations in the report back of research findings to community members. Open-source tools can be effectively used to create data visualizations, discuss environmental exposure findings, and promote science literacy.
  • Huntington-Moskos L, Rayens MK, Wiggins AT, Butler KM, Hahn EJ. Use of Theory-Driven Report Back to Promote Lung Cancer Risk Reduction. Int J Environ Res Public Health. 2021 Oct 11;18(20):10648. doi: 10.3390/ijerph182010648. PMID: 34682394; PMCID: PMC8536114.
     Impact Statement: The goal of this work is to highlight the role of a report back process in prompting health behavior change. Report back is active sharing of research findings with participants to prompt behavior change. In particular, research on a theory-driven report back process for environmental risk reduction is limited. Our research team sought to evaluate the impact of a stage-tailored report back process with participants who had high home radon and/or air nicotine levels. We found that tailored report back of research findings to individual participants reduced radon exposure and changed the health behavior necessary to remediate radon and SHS exposure. 
  • Polivka BJ, Eldeirawi K, Huntington-Moskos L, Nyenhuis SM. Mask Use Experiences, COVID-19, and Adults with Asthma: A Mixed-Methods Approach. J Allergy Clin Immunol Pract. 2021 Nov 14:S2213-2198(21)01262-9. doi: 10.1016/j.jaip.2021.10.071. Epub ahead of print. PMID: 34785392; PMCID: PMC8590602.
     Impact Statement: This study reports that most adults with asthma reported wearing a mask in public places. Lower asthma control and longer daily mask wearing were associated with more self-reported problems with wearing masks. To increase wearability, study participants recommended using a comfortable mask that fits, staying calm, breathing slowly and deeply were recommended. Recommendations also included taking safe “mask breaks” when needed.
  • Rayens MK, McGeeney T, Wiggins A, Bucher A, Ickes M, Huntington-Moskos L, Clark P, Hahn E. Smoke-free Ordinances and Youth Tobacco Use in Kentucky. Am J Health Promot. 2022 Jan 27:8901171211066913. doi: 10.1177/08901171211066913. Epub ahead of print. PMID: 35081759
    Impact Statement: Nearly half of U.S. youth are not protected by smoke-free laws. This study underscores the association between comprehensive laws and decreased likelihood for both cigarette and smokeless tobacco use among high school students in a state with high use rates overall. 
  • Polivka BJ, Huntington-Moskos L, Folz R, Barnett R. CE: Environments & Health: Chemicals in the Home That Can Exacerbate Asthma. Am J Nurs. 2022 May 1;122(5):34-39. doi: 10.1097/01.NAJ.0000829776.73698.e0. PMID: 35394947. 
    Impact Statement: The authors describe how the use of cleaning and disinfectant products may affect asthma and asthma-related symptoms and report the findings of a recent study they conducted that identified how these products could reduce asthma control in older adults.
  • Eldeirawi KM, Nyenhuis SM, Huntington-Moskos L, Polivka BJ. COVID-19 Related Anxiety Is Associated with Uncontrolled Asthma in Adults. Ann Allergy Asthma Immunol. 2022 Apr 22:S1081-1206(22)00308-8. doi: 10.1016/j.anai.2022.04.011. Epub ahead of print. PMID: 35470038; PMCID: PMC9033292. 
    Impact statement: The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately affected people with chronic diseases, including asthma; these impacts were both physically and psychologically. Our findings underscore the need for health care providers to assess for the ongoing psychological impact of the pandemic and refer to mental health specialists. 
  • Polivka BJ, Huntington-Moskos L, Antimisiaris DE, Cavallazzi RS, Folz RJ. Phenotyping older adults with asthma by means of cluster analysis. Ann Allergy Asthma Immunol. 2022 Jun 10:S1081-1206(22)00501-4. doi: 10.1016/j.anai.2022.06.003. Epub ahead of print. PMID: 35697194
    Impact Statement:  Whereas a number of publications have identified asthma phenotypes in adults, few have focused only on older adults. As a component of a randomized controlled trial of older adults (≥50 years old) with persistent asthma, Baptist et al identified 4 phenotypic clusters. The purpose of this study was to compare findings from the Baptist et al study with cluster analysis findings from a cohort of older adults with asthma participating in a longitudinal observational study. 
  • Nyenhuis S, Cramer E, Grande M, Huntington-Moskos L, Krueger K, Bimbi O, Polivka B, Eldeirawi K. Utilizing Real-time Technology to Assess the Impact of Home Environmental Exposures on Asthma Symptoms: Protocol for an Observational Pilot Study. JMIR Res Protoc. 2022 Aug 2;11(8):e39887. doi: 10.2196/39887. PMID: 35916686Impact Statement: It is estimated that over 60% of adults with asthma have uncontrolled symptoms, representing a substantial health and economic impact. Findings from this feasibility study will support a powered study to address the impact of home environmental exposures on asthma symptoms and develop tailored, home-based asthma interventions that are responsive to the changing home environment and home routines.

As a committee, we recognize significant mental health disparities exist within populations, such as racially and ethnically diverse and LGBTQ+ communities. We will continue addressing health disparities in our research and initiatives and work collaboratively to push the profession forward by introducing innovative strategies for promoting mental health workforce diversity.
  • Grande M, Eldeirawi KM, Huntington-Moskos L, Polivka B, Nyenhuis SM. The Association of Food Insecurity With Asthma Control in Adults During COVID-19. J Allergy Clin Immunol Pract. 2023 May 3:S2213-2198(23)00469-5. doi: 10.1016/j.jaip.2023.04.028. Epub ahead of print. PMID: 37146886.
    Impact Statement: This study highlights the importance of understanding the relationship between food insecurity and asthma control in adults during the COVID-19 pandemic. The findings demonstrate that adults with higher levels of food insecurity are more likely to have uncontrolled asthma, emphasizing the need for healthcare providers to screen and address food insecurity when managing individuals with asthma to improve their overall asthma control and well-being.
  • Naegle MA, Kelly LA, Embree JL, Valentine N, Sharp D, Grinspun D, Hines-Martin VP, Crawford CL, Rosa WE. American academy of nursing consensus recommendations to advance system level change for nurse well-being. Nurs Outlook. 2023 Feb 1;71(2):101917. doi: 10.1016/j.outlook.2023.101917. Epub ahead of print. PMID: 36736029; PMCID: PMC9889942.
    Impact Statement: This paper proposes recommendations from the AAN Expert Panels on Building Health Care System Excellence, Psychiatric Mental Health and Substance Use, and Global Health Expert Panels for the American Academy of Nursing to leverage related policy in the arenas of government and professional/healthcare organizations. Transforming health care work environments and advancing nurse well-being and equity can be accomplished through key, innovative policy changes. These will be achieved through collaboration among associations, organizations, nonprofit groups, and with the public and the media.
  • Wei H, Price Z, Evans K, Haberstroh A, Hines-Martin V, Harrington CC. The State of the Science of Nurses' Implicit Bias: A Call to Go Beyond the Face of the Other and Revisit the Ethics of Belonging and Power. ANS Adv Nurs Sci. 2023 Jan 10. doi: 10.1097/ANS.0000000000000470. Epub ahead of print. PMID: 36728370.
    Impact Statement: This article summarizes the current state of nurses' implicit bias and discusses the phenomenon from Levinas' face of the Other and ethics of belonging, Watson's human caring and unitary caring science, and Chinn's peace and power theory. Nurses' implicit bias is a global issue; the primary sources of nurses' implicit bias include race/ethnicity, sexuality, health conditions, age, mental health status, and substance use disorders. The current research stays at the descriptive level and addresses implicit bias at the individual level. This article invites nurses to go beyond “the face of the Other” and revisit the ethics of belonging and power.
