STATEMENT OF NEED

The recommendations for medical care for individuals with Down syndrome is constantly evolving. Although current health supervision guidelines exist, there are large gaps in the knowledge about optimal care practices. Training in caring for individuals with Down syndrome is often limited in medical schools and residency programs. Health care providers with in-depth knowledge about caring for individuals with Down syndrome are limited in number and providing an opportunity for those experts to share their knowledge can be beneficial to others caring for people with Down syndrome.

TARGET AUDIENCE

This educational activity is intended for primary care physicians, specialty physicians, advanced practice providers, psychologists, dietitians, occupational and physical therapists, speech-language pathologists, social workers, genetic counselors, research scientists, residents, and trainees.

ACTIVITY OBJECTIVES

The learning objectives for this activity are to:

  • Identify best practice management strategies for individuals with Down syndrome and their caregivers
  • Recognize and discuss trends, with interprofessional colleagues, in care for people with Down syndrome
  • Formulate best practice care plans with interprofessional colleagues to incorporate into their practice

ELEMENTS OF COMPETENCE
