Course Description

This learning activity provides a comprehensive overview of the growing threat of tickborne diseases to children's health in the United States, with a focus on the five most common illnesses: Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, ehrlichiosis, anaplasmosis, and babesiosis. The learning activity delves into the epidemiology, transmission, clinical presentation, diagnostic criteria, and treatment for each disease, based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).

The learning activity highlights the importance of healthcare providers, particularly nurses, in recognizing the signs and symptoms of tickborne diseases, initiating prompt and appropriate treatment, and educating families about effective prevention strategies. It emphasizes the need for vigilance and awareness, as delayed or misdiagnosed tickborne diseases can lead to severe complications and long-term health consequences for affected children.

By providing a detailed analysis of each tickborne disease and the latest evidence-based recommendations for diagnosis, treatment, and prevention, this learning activity serves as a valuable resource for healthcare professionals seeking to improve their knowledge and skills in managing these potentially serious illnesses in pediatric patients.
