An online Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome CME course is now available to medical professionals to increase awareness and diagnosis of VEDS among emergency physicians, nurses, and advanced practice clinicians.
As a rare form of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, VEDS is often misdiagnosed or undiagnosed until a major life-threatening medical event. Individuals frequently describe their long road to diagnosis, as well as emergency department visits where physicians have confused them for having a less dangerous condition. The lack of familiarity with VEDS among emergency physicians frequently leads to errors in triage and treatment. Some common hospital procedures can even be harmful to individuals with VEDS.
The e-learning course is available online to organizations who subscribe to The Sullivan Group’s Emergency Medicine CME Training Library or for individual purchase at The Sullivan Group’s website. A portion of the revenue from the Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome CME will be shared with The VEDS Movement to help fund additional initiatives to expand its programs and services for the VEDS community.
