Immune Deficiency Foundation (IDF) launches new resources for medical professionals
IDF’s medical advisory committee created two new resources to improve diagnostic knowledge for healthcare providers.
Flyers for medical specialists (dermatology; ear, nose, and throat; gastroenterology; hematology/oncology; hepatology; infectious disease; pulmonology; and rheumatology) outline relevant signs and symptoms of primary immunodeficiency and information on diagnosis. All are available at no cost to healthcare providers.
In addition, IDF’s nurse advisory committee created a card for patients to carry with them and share with emergency care providers. This card gives important information about their condition and the precautions needed for their safe care.
