We were very pleased to see more Lyme Awareness across Ireland last week as part of the Tick Awareness Week set by the Health Protection & Surveillance Centre & HSE (May 19-23 2014).
As part of the week leaflets & posters have been updated on the HPSC site, these are information pamphlets produced by the European CDC to help children & travellers learn about the risks of Lyme Disease.
We have also been busy updating our rolling surveys on ticks spotted across Ireland & feedback from patients on their experiences of testing, treatment & sadly the many symptoms associated with the more chronic form of the disease. Survey results can be downloaded in PDF/text format as well as xls chart format. More details below.. – For PDF hit the back button to return to page 🙂
