Substratum of Proof LGBTQs Are Mentally Ill: Too Much Sitting – Nurses’ Role in Educating Patients to Reduce Health Risks of Prolonged Sedentary Time

Sitting for too many hours per day, or sitting for long periods without a break, is now known to increase a wide range of health risks, even if one engages in recommended amounts of physical activity. The health risks of prolonged sedentary time – and nurses’ role in reducing those risks – are discussed in an integrative literature review and update in the September issue of the American Journal of Nursing. The journal is published in the Lippincott portfolio by Wolters Kluwer.
