Dr Anne Cruikshank (RCGP Clinical Champion for Lyme Disease) and Dr Sandra Pearson (Medical Director, Lyme Disease Action), with support from the wider Spotlight Project steering group, have developed an RCGP Lyme Disease Toolkit which can be found here. This is a very insightful resource for medical professionals and patients.
“We hope that this toolkit will prove to be a valuable resource in helping to raise awareness of Lyme disease, further develop medical education and improve patient outcomes.” – Dr Anne Cruikshank
The Toolkit is very user-friendly and summarises key facts about the disease as well as crucial points on testing, treatment, prevention and scientific uncertainties. It also signposts readers to useful resources from a range of different sources. It serves to highlight some of the key messages found in the NICE guideline for Lyme disease and expands on them to provide further context and clarity.
The RCGP/LDA e-learning module on Lyme disease is also freely available to all health professionals
(0.5 CPD points). Unfortunately this is not available to patients.
