This course was designed because it is important for nurses to know what these patients and families have been through prior to coming to see us to empathize with the intensity and concern, that at times seems mismatched with the current clinical picture.
After completing this activity, the learner will be able to:
- Identify the clinical features seen in the diagnosis of JDM
- Verbalize the recommended treatment and strategy (early and aggressive) of JDM.
