70th Pediatrics by the Gulf: Annual Conference on Advances in Pediatrics
June 11, 2021 - June 12, 2021
The constantly changing information around the COVID-19 pandemic makes it difficult for practitioners to stay up to date on the latest data, particularly in how the updates impact the care of infants, children, and adolescents. The goal of this activity is to provide the current research and new information impacting public health and general pediatric practice. This course will address the challenges faced during the COVID-19 pandemic as well as diagnosing and treating medical conditions of infants, children, and adolescents. It will include public health updates, state-of-the-art medicine sessions, and building skills workshops of interests specific to pediatrics.
This educational activity is designed for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and nurses who care for infants, children, and adolescents.
At the conclusion of the activity, participants should be able to:
- Identify the impact of current Texas Legislative updates on public health issues, including vaccinations and clinical considerations when caring for immigrant children.
- Apply state-of-the-art medical advancements in areas of adolescent care, including vaping and individualized acne management, while maintaining confidentiality when treating teens.
- Analyze the impact of COVID-19 pandemic, long-term complications, vaccines, and return to play and school challenges after a COVID-19 diagnosis for pediatric patients.
