Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to partner with a host agency, The Center for Lupus Care Inc., to locate a potential funding source, The Annenberg Foundation, and to write a grant proposal to acquire funding for a service delivery program that meets the medical, psychological and educational needs of adults diagnosed with lupus. A literature review was conducted to examine the special needs of people diagnosed with lupus and the various ways in which lupus impacts the individual and family systems. This program will fund two social workers who will provide clinical case management services by recruiting new lupus patients, conducting biopsychosocial assessments for each new client and linking these clients to appropriate community resources. The social workers will also host two educational forums about lupus. The actual submission or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
