CME Information

Goal

The goal of this educational activity is to provide pediatric caregivers with up-to-date, evidence-based information on a variety of important and current topics. Participants will gain knowledge of new developments in the field of pediatrics that will be applicable to their practice.

Needs and Educational Gaps for the Activity

  • Rates of physician burnout have soared during the COVID-19 pandemic. Physicians are looking for ways to feel reconnected to their patients; narrative medicine focuses on storytelling as a means to improve empathetic and humanistic patient care.

  • Specific updates to the NHLBI guidelines for the diagnosis and management of pediatric asthma were issued in 2020 and due to some major changes compared to the prior guideline they have not yet been widely adopted. This workshop presents a summary of the updates for providers about the new guidelines and offers salient take home points as well as practical implementation recommendations.

  • Dermatologic concerns are a frequent reason for visits to a pediatrician. However, there are new treatment modalities that pediatricians need to incorporate into their practice.

  • Social media has become the new norm to communicate with our patients and their families and update them about the latest medical information. However, many providers are still struggling with navigating the wide variety of platforms and utilizing social media to influence and optimize medical care.

  • This year's Henry Barnett Memorial Lecture will update providers with the latest scientific insights into pediatric SARS-CoV-2 infection, why children overall have a milder disease course compared to adults, and what may contribute to the unusual manifestation of multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS-C).

  • Primary care clinicians and sub-specialists are often called on to support and advise transgender youth and their families about various aspects of their care. However, there is a significant gap in provider knowledge and understanding of comprehensive gender-affirming care and treatment options, as well as comfort with participating in these conversations with families.

Learning Objectives

After attending this activity, the learner should be able to:

Objective One: Identify three techniques from Narrative Medicine that can be integrated into daily practice

Objective Two: Review the 2020 National Asthma Education Prevention Program focused updates and recommendations for children with asthma

Objective Three: List traditional and novel treatments for both common and less common pediatric skin disorders

Objective Four: Identify professional development opportunities and potential risks to pediatricians’ use of social media

Objective Five: Explain why children fare better than adults when infected with SARS-CoV-2

Objective Six: Define gender affirming care and identify at least 3 treatment options in providing comprehensive gender affirming care for transgender youth
