Continuing Medical & Nurse Education

Continuing Education Programs

The National Scleroderma Foundation offers Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) as a vital tool in advancing awareness and understanding of scleroderma and its comorbid conditions among health care providers.

Because scleroderma is a systemic disorder, individuals living with scleroderma are typically under the care of multiple specialists in the course of disease management, depending on the particular organ system(s) affected by the disease (e.g. skin, heart, lungs, kidneys, digestive track, etc.). There is a great need to educate medical professionals on the various manifestations of scleroderma to foster quicker, more accurate diagnosis to enhance outcomes/quality of life.

The Foundation’s CME and CNE programs provide continuing education credits for health care providers to learn more about this complex disease.
