Accommodating emotionally impaired

Lupus symptoms tend to present themselves according to the body system affected.

The information and nursing interventions described in this article are not meant to be inclusive, but to provide the practitioner with guidelines for developing a care plan specific to the needs of each lupus patient.

As a care plan is developed, the health professional should keep in mind the importance of frequently reassessing the patient's status over time and adjusting treatment to accommodate the variability of SLE manifestations.

To effectively care for a lupus patient, the nurse or other health professional needs an up-to-date knowledge and understanding of the disease, its many manifestations, and its changing and often unpredictable course.

This article provides an overview of general and system-specific lupus manifestations and identifies potential problems.

An additional and very important element of working with the lupus patient is to incorporate the patient's needs and routines in the plan of care.

Adjusting nursing interventions and medical protocols to the patient's needs not only recognizes the value of the patient as an authority on her or his own illness but also can improve patient compliance and result in an improved quality of life.

Throughout this guidance document, the different chapters set out how a local authority should go about performing its care and support responsibilities.

Underpinning all of these individual ‘care and support functions’ (that is, any process, activity or broader responsibility that the local authority performs) is the need to ensure that doing so focuses on the needs and goals of the person concerned.
