Overview

What Nurses Know HIV/AIDS provides up-to-date, reliable and practical health information for people living with HIV and their significant others. In easy-to-understand everyday language the authors give information to help individuals with HIV navigate the healthcare system, covering everything from receiving an initial HIV test to becoming an engaged member of their healthcare team, knowledgeable and actively involved in their healthcare decisions. The authors include vignettes based on their real-life experiences that speak to the individual with aids. However, they approach HIV in a holistic manner and write not for the individual with HIV, but also their friends, family, and community.

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.

Editorial Reviews

quotes
"A practical and usable guide that can serve as an empowering tool for anyone wanting to learn more about the care of individuals with HIV infection."-Journal of the Association of Nurses in AIDS Care, March 2013

"A great resource for anyone diagnosed with HIV/AIDS and the people who care about them."-Library Journal, March 2012

"Over more than thirty years of the HIV epidemic nurses have played an irreplaceable role in patient care, education, and support. Here's to Rose and Maithe, nurses who walk the walk every day; then go beyond the clinic to research and publish. What Nurses Know HIV/AIDS provides plainly worded,
practical, yet comprehensive answers to common questions. It should serve as a powerful tool to educate and empower, not only patients, family, and friends, but healthcare students and practitioners as well."-Michael R. Driks, MD, Infectious Disease Associates of Kansas City, PC,
Kansas City, MO

"[All persons] living with HIV can do their part by educating themselves and others, practice safe sex, promote testing, stay engaged in care and by living well. This book will provide you with much needed knowledge and information. As we all know, KNOWLEDGE IS POWER! HIV can stop with us one step at a time."-Deanna L. Hayes, HIV Peer Educator and Patient Advocate, Truman Medical Center, Hospital Hill, Kansas City, MO

"Everyone should read this book! It is definitely not just for the HIV-positive individual. Anyone who reads it will benefit, and it is written in a way that is very easy to understand. This book should be given to all high schools students as part of their education. HIV/AIDS has been around for 30 years, and sadly the stigma is still with us today, and if people would just read this book, they may begin to realize HIV/AIDS is, after all, a 'human' condition that does not discriminate." - Patricia "Trish" Steen, HIV Peer Educator and Patient Advocate, Truman Medical Center, Hospital Hill, Kansas City, MO

"There are a plethora [of] times when we get a 'How to' book on self-care [and then] we are diluted by the deluge of facts and recommendations. The ether of our innocence fades into time and so shall we follow. Comes now a book to help with our tomorrows."-Gerry Ortego, HIV Peer Educator and Patient Advocate,
Truman Medical Center, Hospital Hill, Kansas City, MO

Library Journal
A diagnosis of HIV/AIDS is a life-altering and often frightening event. Being informed is the first step in managing the disease, and registered nurses Farnan (infectious diseases program manager, Truman Medical Ctr.), who has cared for people with HIV/AIDS since 1991, and Enriquez (medicine & nursing, Univ. of Missouri-Kansas Cty.) lead readers through diagnosis and beyond by clearly explaining what to expect from medical appointments, treatments, and lifestyle changes geared to help patients stay healthy. Each chapter starts with a narrative in which someone who has HIV or AIDS describes his or her reaction to the diagnosis and subsequent fears and hopes; these remind readers that they are not alone. Contents include chapters on lifestyle changes, antiretroviral medications, HIV-related infections, mental health, legal issues, men's and women's health, as well as fact sheets and complaint forms from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. A chapter on children and HIV provides information for affected couples who want children and covers issues pertaining to same-sex couples. VERDICT A great resource for anyone diagnosed with HIV/AIDS and the people who care about them.—Susanne Caro, Univ. of Montana Lib., Missoula
