focus on developmental disabilities because of their prevalence in children and the importance of early diagnosis and initiation of treatment. Experts in the field of autism will update participants on early diagnosis and management of this disorder through several lectures and an intensive workshop.
In addition, the etiologies and management of early childhood hearing loss will be explored in depth by an audiologist and an otolaryngologist. Pediatric subspecialists in various disciplines, including ophthalmology, infectious diseases and dermatology, will present updates in their fields with relevance to practitioners delivering primary care to children.
Participants will be active learners through the use of an audience response system in some of the general sessions as well as a series of interactive workshops. This method 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 will prove valuable in the day-to-day practices of pediatricians, family practitioners, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, 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.
