Statement of Need

Continuous advances in clinical science require pediatric and family physicians to obtain comprehensive, up-to-date information on a wide variety of clinical issues that may be encountered in daily practice. This course will focus on clinical management strategies of conditions in pediatric eating disorders, chronic illness requiring pediatric palliative care, assessment and treatment of the limping child, Pediatric Acute-Onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome (PANS) and Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections (PANDAS) diagnoses and treatment, advances in asthma treatment and fevers seen in rheumatology. It will also discuss when to refer to the neurosurgeon as well as the evidence (or not) for the use of cannabinoids in children with epilepsy.

Target Audience

This is a regional conference designed to meet the educational needs of:

  • Physicians specializing in pediatrics and family practice
  • Nurse Practitioners
  • Nurses
  • Allied Health Professionals

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Develop a strategy for the care of the young child with an eating disorder.
  • Describe the difference between PANS and PANDAS and develop a strategy to treat each.
  • Appropriately use a palliative care home for the chronically ill child.
  • Review the current evidence for the use of cannabinoids/CBD for pediatric epilepsy in order to determine when or if to use in practice.
