This 4-part series will enable front-line clinicians to recognize, diagnose, and treat Lyme disease, an increasingly common tickborne illness. The free online curriculum will be a valuable resource for primary care clinicians, public health professionals, pharmacists, and health educators who encounter clients with Lyme disease.

The 4-part series includes the following courses:

Introduction to Tickborne Diseases and Disease Prevention (Module 1)
Lyme Disease Clinical Overview (Module 2)
Lyme Disease Testing and Diagnosis (Module 3)
Lyme Disease Treatment and Management (Module 4)

The National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) is proud to announce its Nurse Practitioner Education and Knowledge Assessment for Lyme Disease initiative, funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. NAPNAP was awarded funding for the campaign via the CDC’s Mobilizing Pediatric Provider Networks: An Education and Training Initiative to Prevent and Control Infectious Disease Threats federal award project.

The long-term goals of this project are to increase the number of pediatric-focused nurse practitioners (NPs) who actively use evidence-based guidelines and recommended best practices in their interactions with their patients and families and to improve clinical outcomes among patients with suspected or confirmed Lyme disease.
