Systematic lupus erythematosus is an autoimmune disease that can affect any system and organ in the body. For the 1.4 million people in the United States who have lupus, their overactive immune system senses that different parts of the body do not belong-and it attacks these parts. The immune system may strike the cells that line the joints or tendons, for example, causing pain and swelling. An incredibly complex disease, Lupus must be properly treated for the optimal health and well-being of the person who has it. "The Lupus Encyclopedia" is an authoritative compendium that provides detailed explanations of every body system potentially affected by the disease, along with practical advice about coping for people with lupus, their loved ones, caregivers, and medical professionals. Illustrated with photographs, diagrams, and tables, "The Lupus Encyclopedia" explains symptoms, diagnostic methods, medications and their potential side effects, and when to seek medical attention. Dr. Thomas provides information for women who wish to become pregnant and advises readers about working with a disability, complementary and alternative medicine, infections, cancer, and a host of other topics.

Sponsored by the Picker/Commonwealth Program for Patient-Centered Care In this comprehensive, research-based look at the experiences and needs of patients, the authors explore models of care that can make hospitalization more humane. Through the Patient's Eyes provides insights into why some hospitals are more patient-centered than others; how physicians can become more involved in patient-centered quality efforts; and how patient-centered quality can be integrated into health care policy, standards, and regulations. The authors show how, by bringing the patient's perspective to the design and delivery of health services, providers can improve their ability to meet patient's needs and enhance the quality of care.

This book should be read by every nurse manager. Nursing students and faculty will benefit from reading it as well."-Nursing Education Perspectives "Dr. Forman's book is revolutionary and courageous in that it brings to light negative issues that exist in nursing management and patient care. Her use of plain, day-to-day language and methods will ultimately bring reform to health care at the bedside." -Deborah M. Tascone, MS, RN Regional Executive Director North Shore Long Island Jewish Health System "The vignettes provide great examples that could lead to rich classroom or workshop discussions. Perfect for leadership/management courses and in health care organizations." Diana Mason, PhD, C, FAAN, RN Editor Emeritus, American Journal of Nursing Professor of Nursing, Rudin Chair, Hunter-Bellevue College of Nursing Too often, both nurses and patients witness major breakdowns in the health care system-ineffective communication, unrealistic nurse-patient ratios, tension among staff, abuse of authority, and most importantly, managers drawn away from patients due to administrative duties. This inspiring guide presents engaging, real-life stories of nurses, managers, and leaders who have experienced failures of the system firsthand, and have been motivated to critically examine, address, and resolve them. This collection of narratives includes practical methods, models, and strategies that nurses can apply to enhance and expand their own practices. Readers will gain a wealth of insight on how to overcome narrow-mindedness and egocentrism, to improve their management, leadership, communication, and organizational skills, and ultimately to bring real reform to health care practices and patient care. Key features: Presents stories of actual management issues and how nurse leaders/managers, nursing staff, and patients have handled them Identifies harmful trends in the health care system that can be analyzed and remedied Encourages nurse managers to shift the prevailing "s
