About the 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. What Nurses Know gives down-to-earth information, addresses consumers as equal partners in their care, and explains clearly what readers need to know and wants to know to understand their condition and move forward with their lives.

Book News Annotation:

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a confusing disorder --researchers don't know yet what causes it, women who have it experience different symptoms, and there are three different sets of diagnosis guidelines for doctors. This handbook is written by an experienced nurse for women who are facing a PCOS diagnosis, for those who have already been diagnosed, and for friends and family of women with PCOS. It mixes personal experiences from women living with the disorder with up-to-date medical information. The author presents discussion of symptoms, advice on how to get a diagnosis, lifestyle changes, medications, body image issues, long term health implications, mental health concerns, and fertility issues. Roush has been a nurse specializing in women's issues for over 25 years, and is a former Editorial Director of the American Journal of Nursing.
