Lyme Disease: A Clinician's Quandary

Lyme disease is the most common vector borne disease in the United States; unfortunately the diagnosis is frequently missed. Many times Lyme patients are misdiagnosed with incurable illnesses such as Lupus, Fibromyalgia or Multiple Sclerosis. Furthermore, health care providers who doubt that any illness could cause so many varied symptoms often stigmatize patients with a psychiatric diagnosis. If clinicians were more aware of when to suspect Lyme disease and how to diagnose it, many patients would be spared years of needless suffering. This OnDemand Webinar teaches health care providers to understand the complexities of the diagnosis of this easy-to-miss disease. Each of the many roadblocks in diagnosing Lyme disease will be discussed in detail. Clinicians who view the program will possess superior skills in picking up Lyme disease in their future patients and will be surprised to find that many of their most complex patients are suspect for Lyme disease.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will be able to describe how acute Lyme disease could be missed.
  • You will be able to identify key findings of late disseminated Lyme disease.
  • You will be able to discuss differential diagnoses for Lyme disease.
  • You will be able to describe drawbacks of current Lyme disease tests.
