Speak Up Now! The IDSA Is Revising Its Lyme Guidelines And Patient Viewpoints Matter

The treatment guidelines of Infectious Diseases Society of America (IDSA) are more than 5 years old. That means they will be taken off the National Guidelines Clearinghouse in January. It also means that the IDSA is now revising those guidelines. According to the Institute of Medicine, guideline developers must consider patient values and preferences to be considered trustworthy. Our last survey found that 80% of patients would not choose to be treated under the IDSA guidelines. So patient trust in IDSA Lyme treatment guidelines a big issue. But when was the last time the IDSA asked you what you valued or what you preferred in the treatment of Lyme disease? The answer is: NEVER. It’s time we do something about that. We are conducting a survey to find out what you think is important about treatment options, choices, risks and benefits. Our last survey drew over 4,000 responses. Let’s do it again and remind the IDSA that patient values are central to treatment guidelines!

    I must express my thanks to the writer for bailing me out of this particular condition. Just after searching throughout the world-wide-web and seeing opinions which were not productive, I figured my life was over. Existing without the presence of solutions to the difficulties you have resolved by way of your short article is a crucial case, and ones which may have adversely damaged my career if I hadn’t come across the blog. Your primary understanding and kindness in touching a lot of stuff was tremendous. I’m not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t encountered such a stuff like this. I can also at this time look forward to my future. Thanks very much for the skilled and effective guide. I won’t hesitate to refer your blog to anyone who needs to have direction about this subject.
