CS231: A Nurse’s Journey with Pemphigus Vulgaris
Becky Strong, a patient with pemphigus vulgaris, will share her emotional diagnosis journey. This profoundly moving and educational presentation shines a light on the average pemphigus and pemphigoid patient experience of delayed diagnosis. For Becky, this included 17 months, six physicians, multiple encounters with her dentist, and several rounds of incorrect treatments. Becky hopes her story will shorten diagnosis times for future patients. For a sneak peek at Becky’s presentation, watch her short video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUFJYmmL-rg. Pemphigus and pemphigoid (P/P) are chronic, autoimmune, blistering diseases that target proteins essential in holding together skin and mucosal epithelial cells. Nurses have a unique opportunity to reduce diagnostic delays. The International Pemphigus & Pemphigoid Foundation provides patients and healthcare providers worldwide with information about P/P and supports patients and their caregivers so they can continue to live active, productive lives. IPPF’s Awareness Campaign aims to reduce P/P diagnostic delays. To learn more, visit their website at www.pemphigus.org/awareness.
