Lyme Disease CME Course Focuses on Diagnosis, Treatment

IDSA is now offering a free, online course to help physicians, nurses, and other clinicians recognize and diagnose Lyme disease, and treat it promptly and effectively.

The interactive course consists of a series of case studies for participants to evaluate involving patients with a variety of symptoms, including progressive chronic pain, facial palsy, puzzling rashes, persistent headache, and progressive asymmetric bilateral lower extremity numbness.

The course is based on IDSA’s 2006 practice guideline on the treatment and prevention of Lyme disease, human granulocytic anaplasmosis, and babesiosis. The course was supported by an educational grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Continuing medical education (CME) credits are available for physicians who complete the course; other professionals can obtain a letter of completion.
