New York, NY (PRWEB) July 23, 2010
A 2008 article in the Journal of Medical Ethics stated “because nurses frequently play an active role as liaison between the different cultures of the medical community and lay-persons, they are ideally suited to educate patients and diffuse conflict with family members, resulting in better medical care.” No statement could be more prescient concerning nurse’s roles in modern American healthcare. Nurses have come to embody the medical community’s direct voice to the people; nurses explain clearly what a patient needs to know and wants to know to understand their condition to move forward with their lives. Demos Health’s What Nurses Know... series pays respect to that critical role that nurses play in modern health care.
It’s reliable health advice that people seem to be clamoring for, and this is what our new series What Nurses Know... provides. Often the questions that a patient asks of a nurse are about issues they don’t view as medical and haven’t asked their doctors. But they believe nurses will give them an honest answer...and they will.
What Nurses Know...PCOS, a new book by nurse-expert Karen Roush, is the first book published in our series, and sheds light on this common condition, its symptoms and treatment. Well-organized and clearly written, the book provides special tips, facts, lifestyle suggestions and things that only a nurse would know.
Karen Roush, RN, MSN, FNP, BC, has been a nurse specializing in women's issues for over 25 years. She is a former Editorial Director of the American Journal of Nursing and is currently a Mary Clark Rockefeller Scholar and PhD candidate in the College of Nursing at New York University.
The first title in the What Nurses Know...series, What Nurses Know…PCOS by Karen Roush, RN is available in quality trade paperback for a list price of $16.95. It is published by Demos Health, distributed by Publishers Group West and is also available through Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, and all major bookstores and outlets.
