Course Brochure

Third Annual Lyme Disease Topics at Johns Hopkins is organized by Johns Hopkins University (JHU) and will be held on Jun 14, 2019 at Mt. Washington Conference Center, Baltimore, Maryland, United States of America.

Target Audience:
This activity is intended for General Practice, Family Practice, Rheumatology, Infectious Disease and Family Practice Nurse Practitioner.

Description:
Lyme Disease affects over 300,000 new patients every year who are clustered in and around the major metropolitan regions of the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern United States. Timely diagnosis of acute Lyme Disease depends on the accurate identification of the early erythema migrans skin lesion. Untreated, Lyme Disease can progress to disseminated infection involving the nervous system, heart, and joints. 

Antibiotic treatment of Lyme Disease is effective in resolving the objective manifestations of infection, however, a subset of patients develop persistent symptoms called Post-Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome (PTLDS). Experts from Johns Hopkins have carefully described the patient symptoms, physical findings and laboratory finding in a well-documented case series of patients with PTLDS.

The diagnosis of all manifestations of Lyme Disease and PTLDS in the clinical practice of medicine is challenging and this course seeks to provide education to healthcare practitioners who may see patients with the spectrum of illness associated with Lyme Disease and PTLDS.

2019 Topics Include:
• Lyme Disease Update
• Updates in Epidemiology of Tick-Borne Infections
• Lyme Carditis
• POTS and Autonomic Dysfunction
• Workshops
     • Pharmacologic Management of Symptoms in Post-Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome (PTLDS)
     • Non-pharmacologic Management of Post-Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome
     • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Other Behavioral Interventions for Symptoms of PTLDS

Objectives:
• Describe the clinical manifestations, current criteria and tests used for the diagnosis of the different stages of Lyme Disease.
• Compare and contrast the symptoms, signs and natural history of untreated Lyme Disease to those of Post-Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome.
• Identify the challenges to the diagnosis and treatment of Post-Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome.
• Identify and describe approaches to the management of fatigue in patients with Post-Treatment Lyme Disease Syndrome.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
