Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes (EDS) Education
This Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes (EDS) Physician Education Program is a series of online courses covering the fundamental principles for the diagnosis, classification, and treatment of Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes and related disorders as well as associated conditions. Any healthcare providers interested in learning more about EDS diagnosis and treatment are encouraged to view the presentations. The focus of this program is on a basic understanding of these complex disorders that often present with a diversity of symptoms which make diagnosis challenging. Also, the severity of EDS and related disorders varies tremendously from mild to severely disabling symptomatology and recognition is critical as the morbidity and mortality can be very significant. This program includes information for the care of patients from infancy through adulthood.
The EDS program is offered at: https://ehlers-danlos-cme.org/
