Target Audience and Needs
Pediatric critical care physicians, pediatric neurologists, advanced practice providers, fellows, and residents need to receive regular updates on pediatric critical care research and advances in the care of critically ill children with neurological conditions. Interpretation of pathological findings derived from advanced neuro-monitoring modalities will be emphasized as a means to guide treatment and detect harmful physiological events early. The aim of the series is to expand clinical knowledge, promote adherence to evidence-based guidelines, enhance the quality of pediatric neurocritical care, disseminate best clinical practices, reduce variations in clinical practice, and improve patient outcomes.
Educational methods will include lectures, case presentations, literature review, and panel discussion.
At the conclusion of the sessions, the participants should be able to:
- Examine and assess the contemporary literature relating to pediatric neurocritical care.
- Appraise professional guidelines and apply best care practices relating to pediatric neurocritical care.
- Discuss the indications for using neuromonitoring modalities in the pediatric intensive care unit and how to interpret the results.
- Review the pathophysiology of neurological conditions commonly treated in the pediatric intensive care unit.
Participants may be asked to complete a session evaluation.
