Lupus and APS Center of Excellence

Lupus and APS Center of Excellence Patient Care

Centralized patient care and research maximizes the patient experience and leads to improved outcomes.

Consisting of a multidisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, social workers, physical therapists, and other professionals, the Center develops and carries out an integrated plan of care. Center rheumatologists and staff work closely in other medical disciplines including nephrology, obstetrics and gynecology, dermatology, psychiatry, neurology, cardiology, hematology/oncology, and pain management specialists.

Our Department of Social Work Programs help patients and their families by assessing and addressing patient and family needs, providing emotional support, and facilitating referrals to HSS and community resources. Social workers assess concerns related to culture, mental health, treatment adherence, insurance status, language and education are addressed as they can affect the ability to access and utilize needed care.
