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.

Statement of Need and Educational Gap

  • Pediatricians routinely see children for sick visits and often need to order imaging studies to help diagnose conditions of concern. Understanding the most appropriate initial imaging modality will facilitate timely diagnosis and minimize unnecessary radiation (consistent with the Image Gently campaign).
  • Advances in technology and medical care have allowed many preterm infants to overcome their early medical challenges; however, they are still faced with long term intellectual and developmental disabilities. Care givers must be able to identify these continuing health and developmental care needs after discharge from neonatal intensive care to optimize long-term outcomes for these medically complex infants.
  • A cardiac examination is part of the routine pediatric physical examination. The ability to rapidly determine when an auscultated arrhythmia or electrocardiogram finding necessitates immediate intervention can be lifesaving.
  • Adolescents with eating disorders can be difficult and challenging to diagnose due to atypical presentations. The ability to recognize the signs and symptoms of atypical anorexia nervosa and decide when and how to screen for eating disordered thoughts and behaviors among overweight and obese adolescents can benefit a high-risk population.
  • Diversity of providers within medical institutions can bring strength and excellence to medical care as providers often care for a diverse population. Understanding strategies and tools that can lead to concrete solutions for fostering diversity, equity and inclusion in pediatrics can enhance the provision of medical care in any field.
  • Recently immigrated unaccompanied children have a unique set of health, psychosocial and legal challenges. Pediatricians need to understand these challenges to be able to provide appropriate care for this at-risk population.

Learning Objectives

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

Objective One: Evaluate the appropriateness of ordering specific imaging studies for certain indications.

Objective Two: Identify the continuing health and developmental care needs after neonatal intensive care for preterm and medically complex infants.

Objective Three: Rapidly analyze, diagnose and formulate a treatment plan for common pediatric tachycardias.

Objective Four: Recognize the signs and symptoms of Atypical Anorexia Nervosa and decide when and how to screen for eating disorders among overweight and obese adolescents.

Objective Five: List concrete solutions to fostering diversity, equity and inclusion in Pediatrics.

Objective Six: Identify the key concepts of a psycho-social history from newly arrived unaccompanied immigrant children; and explain the medical and legal implications of that history.

Accreditation

Albert Einstein College of Medicine is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
