Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)  is a complex illness known as “the great imitator” because its signs/symptoms can mimic so many other diseases. Diagnosis is often a convoluted and lengthy pathway with many patients suffering for years before learning their joint pain, GI symptoms, hair loss and multitude of other symptoms are indeed SLE.

In this podcast episode, Nurse Mo breaks down lupus into easy-to-understand chunks that will help you care for these complex patients and crush your nursing school exams. Using Nurse Mo’s signature LATTE method, you will learn:

  • What is lupus?
  • What are the causes of lupus?
  • What happens in the pathophysiology of lupus?
  • What are the clinical manifestations of lupus?
  • How is lupus diagnosed?
