As pediatric providers, we all know that children don’t always present with “text book” type illnesses. It takes advanced knowledge of the pediatric population to quickly identify acute conditions and formulate a diagnosis and plan. Do you know a child can lose half of their blood volume before it affects their blood pressure? Are you confident that a headache isn’t something more? We will look at many of the complaints kids can present with to ensure you leave with the knowledge and skills necessary to intervene appropriately, all with the most up-to-date research to support the best outcomes for your patients.
Maria has a laid back, humorous approach to teaching within a fun, interactive environment. Her teaching style can make even the most difficult conversations easier to broach with parents and kids, such as when it becomes necessary to address risky teen behaviors, obesity or refusal of immunizations. The way you approach and interact with parents can change the trajectory of the visit, as well as the future health and well- being of the child.
The objective from this one-day, career-changing event is to approach patient care in a new way, with more confidence and advanced abilities to formulate the most effective treatment plan!
