Tick-Borne Diseases

Vector-borne diseases are spread by arthropods such as ticks, mosquitoes, or fleas. In the U.S., ticks are the number one vector responsible for transmission to humans. These tickborne diseases are challenging to diagnose as they often have non-specific symptoms. Healthcare staff must be knowledgeable about how to prevent, recognize, and treat tickborne illnesses.


Learning Objectives

  • Recall basic tick biology and behavior, and geographic areas where tickborne diseases are most common.
  • Define common tickborne diseases and methods for preventing exposure.
  • Name best practices for recognizing, diagnosing, and treating tickborne diseases.
