What Nurses Know Series:

Nurses hold a critical role in modern health care that goes beyond their day-to-day duties. They share more information with patients than any other provider group, and are alongside patients twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week offering understanding of complex health issues, holistic approaches to ailments, and advice for the patient that extends to the family. Nurses themselves are a powerful tool in the healing process.
The What Nurses Know series will give down-to-earth information, address consumers as equal partners in their care and explain clearly what a reader needs to know and wants to know to understand their condition and move forward with their lives.

    Great Resource to Learn About Celiac Disease!

    Both my 12-year-old son and I were recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I have read everything I can get my hands on to learn about how to eat, what to do, what this all means for both of us. Of the half dozen books I've read, this is been the best reference so far. Living Gluten-Free for Dummies is also very good, but I liked this one because it has a lot of practical tips, other people's stories, it's well organized and gives really down-to-earth advise. It's a great resource to help understand all of the different changes and gives good advise about where to start.
