Continuing Medical Education Information

Purpose
To increase early diagnosis and proper treatment of patients with primary immunodeficiency diseases as physicians need to be educated about the recognition and disease management of primary immunodeficiencies. Since individuals are most likely to first contact their primary care providers with symptoms, these physicians especially need information about how to meet their patients’ needs with proper diagnosis, treatments and referrals. In addition, immunologists, allergists and others who treat primary immunodeficiency diseases need to be updated on matters that will lead to earlier diagnosis and appropriate treatment modalities. Nurses who care for patients with primary immunodeficiency diseases or administer immune globulin replacement treatment need continuing education in order to improve the quality of care they provide.

Target Audience
This program is designed for immunologists, allergists, nursing professionals specializing in immunology and other professionals who treat primary immunodeficiency disease. Primary care physicians, including family practitioners and pediatricians will benefit from the program and are encouraged to attend.

Learning Objectives
  • Describe the epidemiology of primary immunodeficiency diseases and recognize the ways in which patients present clinically;
  • Identify the laboratory approaches to assess humoral, cellular, and innate immune function and recognize the current limitations of laboratory testing;
  • Explain that primary immunodeficiency can present with a wide variety of symptoms (infections, autoimmune/inflammatory disorders and part of a syndrome complex);
