Practicing Clinicians Exchange Forms Partnership With National Fibromyalgia Association
Date:2/25/2009

STAMFORD, Conn., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Practicing Clinicians Exchange (PCE) has formed a partnership with the National Fibromyalgia Association (NFA) to provide continuing education programs to nurse practitioners (NPs) and physician assistants (PAs) throughout the United States in 2009.

The partnership is beneficial to both organizations, as the NFA is the largest nonprofit group dedicated to improving the quality of life for people living with fibromyalgia through advocacy and education, and PCE is the national leader in providing continuing education focused solely on the needs of NPs and PAs.

Fibromyalgia affects an estimated 10 million Americans by inducing pain, stiffness, fatigue, sleep problems, and overall reduced quality of life. The cause of fibromyalgia is unknown, and with 3 drugs approved to treat the condition over the past 2 years, many clinicians are unaware of how to treat these patients. This was confirmed by the results of a PCE survey conducted in 2008 that found most NPs and PAs desire and are in need of education on fibromyalgia.

With the US population aging and fewer physicians practicing primary care, the country is facing a healthcare emergency of too many patients and too few doctors. NPs and PAs are instrumental in solving this crisis by filling the primary care role once solely held by physicians. This has led to a primary care tipping point, with NPs and PAs collectively numbering over 200,000, and increasing by over 14,000 per year.

Lynne Matallana, president of the NFA, sees NPs and PAs as the ideal clinicians to care for patients with fibromyalgia. "NPs and PAs provide the patient-centered, personalized care that is required to properly diagnose and manage a patient with fibromyalgia. This makes them perfectly suited to care for this condition. With research and treatment options for fibromyalgia expanding, we're pleased to be working with PCE to educate thi
