About this course

The Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) recently published new guidelines on managing Lyme disease in 2021, the first time these guidelines have been updated since 2006. As such, there are several updates and knowledge gaps that healthcare professionals should be aware of to properly manage and prevent tick-borne infections that are rapidly increasing in the United States. This activity reviews the epidemiology of various ticks and tick-borne infections, including Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, ehrlichiosis, babesiosis, Powassan virus, Borrelia miyamotoi disease, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. The clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment will also be described, along with the updated Lyme Disease guidelines released by the IDSA.

I appreciate the convenience of the course being online and accessible through my phone and that it directly reports to CEBroker to support mandated education requirements.

I really loved this information. I was hospitalized last year for almost a month and I noticed multiple medical errors (not being hooked up to my IV multiple times, given wrong medication which caused my sodium to be very low, etc.) which lengthened my stay. I can now define those exact errors and better understand what happened to me. I hate that these medical errors are so common and I appreciate how well laid out your breakdown and categorization of them was.
