Frustrated? Does dealing with doctors and insurers who don’t understand why patients with Lyme disease need individualized care make you want to scream?
Good news – help is on the horizon. The new ILADS guidelines on Lyme disease address antibiotic treatment for 3 common situations and once they are accepted into the National Guidelines Clearinghouse (a national list of treatment guidelines for all types of diseases), getting doctors and insurers to recognize the usefulness of other treatment options should be less of a problem.
Lyme Support Network medical advisor, Dr. Betty Maloney, will describe some unique features to the ILADS guidelines and why use of the guidelines should reduce your frustrations and improve patient care.
Elizabeth Maloney, M.D. is a member of the American Academy of Family Practice, the Minnesota Academy of Family Practice and the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS). She develops medical education courses on Lyme Disease for medical professionals, provides education on Lyme disease to private organizations and government agencies and has been published in medical journals.
There will be additional time for questions and answers following this presentation. Written questions submitted in advanced to firstname.lastname@example.org will be prioritized.
