Summary

With Lupus affecting more than 1.5 million Americans, predominantly women of childbearing age, there are many complex psychosocial challenges for the health care provider, the patient and the family. This book provides a comprehensive overview of the psychosocial impact of Lupus as a range of health care providers in the field explain the medical, sociocultural and psychological frameworks particularly critical for a better understanding of this perplexing autoimmune disease. With original qualitative and quantitative research and rich case studies and examples from both care providers and patients, this book provides essential information about diagnosis, treatment, mental health issues, and cultural competency issues relevant to all that live with Lupus or provide care to those living with it. This book was originally published as a special issue of Social Work in Health Care.
