Overview

Over the last three decades, several tick species have increased in number and distribution worldwide. The reasons for these changes are multifactorial and include shifts in climate, habitat, wildlife hosts, and human land use patterns. The expansion in tick populations has directly led to an increased risk of infection for both people and animals with established tick-borne agents and newly identified pathogens, creating a true One Health crisis. During the call, clinicians will learn specific examples of changes in the distribution of ticks and tick-borne infections in North America and the recommended strategies to limit transmission and disease in the face of increasing risk.

At the conclusion of the session, the participant will be able to accomplish the following:

  • Describe some of the drivers that have resulted in the increase and geographic expansion of tick populations in North America.
  • Identify regions where certain tick-borne infections are likely to emerge or increase in prevalence, and describe strategies to prevent infections in individuals and communities.
  • List specific examples that highlight the recognition of new tick-borne agents and the spread of established tick-borne infections
