Best Practices in Pediatric Emergency Medicine 2016
This educational activity is designed to provide the latest information about common pediatric problems encountered in the emergency department and will benefit all health care providers who work with children including pediatricians, family practice physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants, emergency medicine specialists, urgent care specialists and paramedics.
Many providers caring for the acutely ill and injured child encounter clinical situations where their comfort level and competency is challenged. The target audience is often the first to treat and stabilize these children prior to transferring to a higher level of care. Studies have shown the providers such as emergency medicine physicians do not feel comfortable when managing these situations.
The goal of this program is to provide the most up to date, evidence based practices to the target audience. The goal will be to provide them with information on common pediatric emergencies, including recommendations on when to refer to higher level of care.
