Ehlers-Danlos Nursing Continuing Education Program

We are very excited to announce the introduction of the First, Online, Free, Ehlers-Danlos Nursing Continuing Education program.

Nursing is the largest healthcare profession, with over 3.6 million nurses in the US alone. Nurses spend more time with patients than many other health professionals, and they are experts in helping patients live with their health issues. By training nurses, EDS Awareness hopes that all patients with EDS will be able to find knowledgeable healthcare professionals who can help them get timely, safe, quality, compassionate care for their EDS-related issues.

In 2019 the EDS Nursing Advisory Group was formed as the first step in developing these courses. This group of experts, has developed the following goals for the first set of six courses:

Goals for EDS Nursing Continuing Education Program

  • Provide safe, quality care for patients with EDS
  • Recognize signs that a patient may have EDS
  • Assist patients with EDS and their families in navigating the healthcare system to get a diagnosis and appropriate treatment
  • Advocate for patients with EDS to other members of the interdisciplinary healthcare team
  • Empower patients with EDS and their family members to advocate for themselves

The first nursing course was launched in Winter of 2019/2020, with more courses to follow.

This continuing nursing education activity was approved by the Wisconsin Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. It is being provided by EDS Awareness/ Chronic Pain Partners.

Please visit the site to review these new programs. All healthcare providers are welcome.

Kind Regards,

John –

and the EDS Nursing Advisory Group
