Summary:

Lyme disease is a systemic bacterial infection that can be transmitted through the bite of an infected tick and causes illness ranging in severity from mild and self-limiting to chronic and debilitating. It commonly attacks the skin and cartilage, but it may also target cardiovascular and neurological organs. Lyme disease is concentrated heavily in the Northeast and upper Midwest, but it has been reported in all states and the District of Columbia. Healthcare professionals may encounter patients infected with Lyme disease in almost any clinical setting, as well as in patients’ homes. Updated clinical knowledge about this disease will enable healthcare practitioners to confidently provide the best care possible to this patient population.

Objectives:

The goal of this continuing education program is to update healthcare professionals’ clinical knowledge about Lyme disease. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Identify risk factors and pathophysiology of Lyme disease
  • Relate current trends in the treatment of Lyme disease and the associated complications
  • Explain recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for preventing Lyme disease
