XNC 8178 - Auto Immune Diseases: Faulty Homeland Security

Autoimmunity is the loss of self-tolerance. Clonal deletion during fetal development ensures self-tolerance and should be maintained life-long. However, may people suffer from autoimmune diseases that develop during their adulthood, or are inherited as genetic diseases. This program will update your knowledge on the immune system, how immunity is supposed to protect us, and what happens when our immune system fails to do so. Discussion will include disorders such as reactions related to the Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) Complex, Celiac disease, diabetes mellitus type 1, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), Hashimoto's thyroiditis, Graves' disease, idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, Addison's Disease, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and others. RNs, LPNs, APRNs, social workers, registered dieticians, respiratory therapists, massage therapists, LPCs and LCPCs will earn 4 contact hours. ACHAs will earn 4 (RC). Approval is pending for PTs and OTs.
