Essential Topics in Pediatrics 2006: Exploring the Developmental Spectrum has been designed for practitioners who provide care for pediatric patients in ambulatory settings. The course has a special focus on the diagnosis and intervention of developmental disabilities because of their prevalence in children and the importance of early diagnosis and initiation of treatment. In addition, common disorders in children which are increasing in frequency, such as ADHD, autism, and pediatric obesity will be explored in more depth. Participants will be active participants in the course through the use of an audience response system in some general sessions as well as a series of interactive workshops. Both of these methods of active learning are designed to assist participants in learning and maintaining the knowledge and skills taught during the course. The course has been designed with the generalist in mind and should prove valuable in the day to day practices of pediatricians, family practitioners, nurse practitioners, pediatric nurses, and school nurses. We hope that you will find a mix of important review topics as well as relevant new information to incorporate into your care of children.
