Abstract and Introduction


NOVEMBER IS Family Caregiver Recognition Month. I am dedicating my editorial in recognition of the extraordinary and unique contributions of family caregivers. Their endless love and dedication warrant our heartfelt appreciation. As a former caregiver to my mother-in-law for over 8 years, I am pleased to acknowledge this sincere appreciation along with other editors of the International Academy of Nurse Editors (INANE). During INANE's 2017 Annual Meeting, nurse editors committed to dedicating their November-December editorials to family caregivers. Together we are joining forces to spotlight the vital role family caregivers perform on behalf of their loved ones.
