The latest issue of American Nurse Today
features the CE module, Be a Myth-Buster: Stop the Misconceptions about Fibromyalgia.

And some view fibromyalgia patients as malingerers—and worse. In such an atmosphere, these patients, about 6 million in the United States, must meet the challenge of coping with extensive pain and fatigue and trying to find adequate treatment for a perplexing condition. As a nurse you can help by learning about fibromyalgia, educating patients and colleagues, and providing patients with supportive, holistic care
The purpose of this CE modules is to provide registered nurses with evidence-based information on the latest strategies for identifying and managing the patient with fibromyalgia.
