10th Annual Update in Pediatrics

Course Description

The field of pediatrics is fluid with new discoveries and advances in patient care. Generalists must be knowledgeable in all areas of preventive care as well as be able to competently care for children with more complex medical problems. It is essential that these healthcare professionals remain current in all areas of pediatric medicine. We will address a range of topics in this year's course, from general outpatient medicine to emergencies that generalists may encounter to chronic illness. This CME course will provide participants with the basic science knowledge and bedside practical skills to manage many everyday clinical challenges. Through lectures,  video demonstrations, and handouts, practitioners will visualize and take home key information for managing everyday encounters with pediatric patients.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this conference, the participant should be able to:
1) Understand the clinical impact of new discoveries in several areas of pediatrics.
2) Improve preventive health strategies for promotion of child health.
3) Develop critical skills in reviewing the current literature to enhance knowledge and improve clinical care in practice.
