Pediatric patients are cared for from birth until they turn 18 yrs old. While providers are required to stay current with the latest recommendations - through such avenues as Up-To-Date in the office, or by attending Live CME conferences, or for their MOC - there is always an opportunity to be informed about and apply the latest initiatives or workflows, that directly impact our ability to provide care to our patients, that we may not be aware of. We continually strive to have more patients receive appropriate testing to identify, treat, and follow individuals with pediatric disorders.
Target Audience: Pediatricians
Series Objectives: As a result of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Describe the referral process for infants, children, and/or adolescents with various tertiary pediatric disorders.
- Identify and perform, or order, the most appropriate physical examination, laboratory test, radiologic test, treatment, or follow up to offer the diverse pediatric patients and their families.
- Review use of uncommonly used, but critically important devices, tools, medications, and protocols.
- Use current evidence based literature in the pediatric practice.
