Afflicting one in seventy Americans, Sjogren´s syndrome is an autoimmune disease that commonly causes dryness of the eyes, mouth, and nose, and that can lead to complications including profound fatigue, depression, and lymphoma. While there is no cure for Sjogren´s, much can be done to alleviate the suffering of patients. This extensively revised handbook offers everything you need to know to cope with this disease. The Sjogren´s Book, Fourth Edition is a comprehensive and authoritative guide, produced by the Sjogren´s Syndrome Foundation and its medical advisors and edited by physician Daniel J. Wallace, a leading authority on autoimmune disorders. This expanded edition provides readers with the best medical and practical information on this disorder, bringing together the current thinking about Sjogren´s in an easily readable and understandable book, with an entirely new section on lifestyle issues aimed at improving the quality of life for Sjogren´s sufferers. With more than thirty chapters written by leading experts, the handbook illuminates the major clinical aspects of the syndrome and is loaded with practical tips and advice. Indeed, it offers a wide-ranging look at the many faces of Sjogren´s, covering diagnosis, the various organ systems that can be affected, the possible psychological problems, and the many treatment options, as well as a concluding chapter listing the web, print, and media resources available. It is a valuable aid that patients can use while discussing their illness with their physician and an excellent resource for family members. And because Sjogren´s is greatly underdiagnosed, this handbook is a particularly valuable resource for healthcare professionals. Recognized as the bible for Sjogren´s suffers, this reliable and informative guide is the first place for patients to look when they have questions about this little known but serious chronic disease.

This is a book about physician burnout. It´s also a book about physician engagement. Why? Because these two concepts are deeply connected. When physicians team up with the organizations they work for to pursue mutual goals, they are far less likely to burn out. And when organizations seek to prevent and treat physician burnout, they go a long way toward getting everyone, physicians included, working together to meet the same goals. There has never been a better time for organizations and physicians to join forces to make sure this happens. High rates of physician burnout and a rapid push toward integration demand it. And while it will surely be challenging, together we can create the right environment to facilitate massive change while keeping physicians physically, mentally, and emotionally strong. Healing Physician Burnout, written by health-care performance expert Quint Studer in collaboration with George Ford, MD, explains how. You´ll find: Evidence on why burnout is so high in physicians and why organizations should care Tactics health system leaders can use to partner with physicians to help them avoid burnout and to ensure that everyone is working toward the same goals Burnout red flags leaders and physicians should watch for so that help may be provided early on Personal profiles that tell of physicians triumphs over burnout and showcase the passion and purpose that keep them persevering Actions physicians can take to heal their own burnout and help others to do so as well Physicians need understanding and empathy for the massive changes they must endure. While no one can stop the shift our industry is undergoing, we can create the kind of positive, supportive work environments that help physicians cope and, ultimately, thrive. 1. Language: English.
