In this online self-learning program:
Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) is a chronic, acquired, autoimmune disorder affecting the peripheral nervous system. Occurring at an incidence of 4-9 people per 100,000, CIDP most commonly occurs in adults aged of 40 to 60, although it may also occur in children and the elderly. The pathophysiology of CIDP is not completely understood but involves several humoral and cell-mediated mechanisms. Symptoms of CIDP include progressive limb weakness, usually with a predilection for proximal muscles, and sensory loss and are monophasic and progress for 8 weeks or more.
Healthcare professionals specializing in: neurology, internal medicine; nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, and pharmacists who specialize in neurology; and those who otherwise commonly care for or clinically encounter patients with CIDP.
This program is supported by an educational grant from CSL Behring.
