Myasthenia Gravis is a rare autoimmune disorder that impacts 20 in 100,000 people. Due to the lack of recognition from health care providers and its rarity, Occupational Therapy (OT) does not often treat this population. By the completion of this course, OT practitioners will be able to explain the signs, symptoms, and prevalence of Myasthenia Gravis. They will be able to discuss the occupational impact, identify and initiate the significant role OT practitioners have with the individuals diagnosed, and advocate for a role with this population.
