Celiac Disease for Nurses and Health Care Providers
Nurses and all health care providers are in a postion to recognize celiac disease, recommend appropriate testing and educate. The National Institute of Health (NIH) in 2004, discussed a mass screening of the United States population and educating all health care providers, neither of which happened. Now, in 2019, a comprehensive, evidence-based course, approved by the ONA for 8 (up to 16) CEs and accredited by the ANA, is available. Trust me, you see these patients everyday, but they need to be diagnosed correctly.
- Recognition of signs and symptoms including neurologic, gastrointestinal, dermatologic and more
- Testing options, interpretation of genetic and antibody results, case studies
- Pathophysiology, incidence and prevalence, world-wide population occurence and history of celiac disease
- Nutritional deficiencies, follow-up, microbiome, immune system, anti-inflammatory options
- Auto-immune connections, gut-brain connection, neuropsychiatry, fetal development, maternal health
If you think celiac disease doesn’t affect you, your family and your friends, think again.
