Seminars in Pediatrics 2022
Conference Overview and Format
Provided annually by the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Department of Pediatrics, the UW Health American Family Children's Hospital, and the University of Wisconsin−Madison Interprofessional Continuing Education Partnership (ICEP). This year we will be hosting a live one-day seminar focusing on the role of pediatricians in fostering community and connections to improve the health of children and families that we serve. We will also feature an asynchronous version of the seminar featuring the keynote talks from the live session.
Practice Gaps and Needs
The field of pediatric medicine is continually changing, resulting in knowledge and performance gaps between current practice and best-practice recommendations. For the general pediatrician, family practice physician, advanced practice providers, nurses, and other members of the healthcare team, access to updates in state-of-the-art pediatric medicine is critical to providing optimal patient care resulting in knowledge and performance gaps between current practice and best practice recommendations. In addition to feedback from past conferences and grand rounds programs, results of a survey of Wisconsin-based physicians indicated great interest in these topics. Furthermore, the members of the conference planning committee, considered experts in this field, identified issues that have seen significant advances in recent years and that will be most applicable to attendees’ clinical work.
Elements of Competence
This continuing education (CE) activity is designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties areas of medical knowledge, and patient care and procedural skills. This activity also focuses on the interprofessional competency of values/ethics for interprofessional practice.
This activity is designed to meet the needs of primary care providers including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and other health care providers who participate in the care of pediatric and adolescent patients.
As a result of this educational activity, learners as members of the healthcare team will be able to:
- Outline new evidence-based clinical practice guidelines and best practice recommendations in relevant pediatric topics
- Describe medical, social, and environmental issues impacting pediatric health
- Develop relationships with other pediatric health care providers to build community and work collaboratively on addressing the health of children and families in our community
