Elements of Competence
In addition to knowledge, this activity has been designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties areas of practice-based learning and improvement medical knowledge.
Clinicians who care for pediatric patients need to be aware of new and/or developing technology and guidelines for practice in key areas of pediatric medicine as identified by the American Board of Pediatrics and department faculty. Many are focused on clinical care or subspecialty areas, so there is not much time to address knowledge gaps on the breadth of pediatric medicine required by the American Board of Pediatrics.
After participation in this regularly scheduled series, participants will:
Increase knowledge of the scientific evidence influencing recent advances in the practice of pediatric medicine in order to recognize trends and how they might impact patient care
Based on the current evidence, independently and consistently identify sound medical practices and develop plans that include effective communication strategies to incorporate these practices into their team-based standard of care.
