Whether you have experience caring for children every day or find yourself intermittently expected to provide pediatric care, it is important to have up-to-date knowledge/skills with this specialized population. This knowledge becomes even more important if you practice in a rural area or perhaps are a school nurse where you are expected to make quick, independent decisions on illnesses in children. After attending this seminar, you will have new-found knowledge that you can use the very next day with your patients and families. The seminar will not just provide theory and research, but information you can actually use in practice.
Common presenting pediatric problems will be divided by age group and include assessment of problems like meningitis, hypertension, fractures and more time-oriented complaints, such as abdominal pain and headaches. We will also discuss common parental questions such as… Is my son old enough to lift weights? Are energy drinks harmful? Could this skin infection be MRSA? When can I give my child peanuts? Pediatric emergencies will be presented, as well, with tips on how to identify the problem and initial interventions to decrease morbidity and mortality.
NOTE: Tuition includes one free CE Certificate (participant will be able to print the certificate of completion after completing and passing the on-line post-test evaluation).
