Seminars in Pediatrics 2020 (Virtual Conference, Central Time)

October 16, 2020

Conference Overview and Format

Seminars in Pediatrics, 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), will be a virtual, one-day conference focusing on health equity. The conference will utilize a user-friendly platform called Blackboard Collaborate. This platform allows for high-quality streaming and provides participants with the ability to have meaningful discussion and Q/A sessions following the presentations.

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.

Conference Objectives

Provide physicians and other health care providers with up-to-date information on new trends and developments in the prevention and treatment of childhood and adolescent diseases.

  • Participants will be able to independently and consistently identify state-of-the-art, evidence-based practices influencing the prevention, diagnosis and treatment in pediatric medicine.
  • Participants will be able to assess their current clinical practices and determine if the research applies to their patient population in order to evaluate the need to make changes to their standard of care.
  • Participants will identify and discuss with the interprofessional team trends in pediatric medicine and formulate plans to improve team-based practice.

Target Audience

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.

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.

From Policy Statement to Practice: Integrating Social Needs Assessment and Outreach in Health Care Delivery, Kevin P. Fiori, MD, MSc, MPH

In 2016, the American Academy of Pediatrics issued a policy statement on poverty and child health, which recommended that providers "screen for risk factors within social determinants of health during patient encounters." However, translating this policy recommendation in routine care is challenging especially with limited evidence-based practice guidance to inform providers. This presentation will provide an overview of Montefiore Health System's experience integrating standardized social needs assessments and linkage to resources in over 20 primary practices, share practical lessons learned, and discuss next steps and needed research on how health systems can support families with unmet social needs.

9:00 AM

Coping With Grief: Supporting Children, Parents, and Providers, Ryan M. McAdams, MD

The impact of grief from disease, disparities, and death on children, parents, and providers can be profound. As pediatric providers, we often need to provide guidance and support to children and families who are grieving. We are also susceptible to grief, which may affect our abilities to perform in a sustainable, high-functioning, effective manner. This presentation will describe sources of grief, the effects of grief, and ways to cope with grief. We will discuss the unique challenges facing children in communities characterized by poverty and toxic stress. This presentation will help pediatric providers identify factors that may hinder normal grieving and provide advice on strategies to promote resilience.

More Than Just Wheezing: Management of Childhood Asthma Begins With Addressing Where our Patients Grow, Live, Learn, and Play, Sima K. Ramratnam, MD, MPH

Asthma is the most common chronic disease of childhood and is one of the main reasons for outpatient and emergency room visits, hospitalizations, high health care costs, and missed school days. There are significant disparities in asthma prevalence and outcomes by race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status. Numerous studies have suggested that social determinants of health, such as the physical environment, neighborhood characteristics, family relationships, education, and access to health services impacts the health of children with asthma. It is vital to identify these social determinants of health in order to address the disparities in asthma outcomes across populations, but doing so can be difficult to integrate into clinical practice. This presentation will review how to identify and address the social determinants of health in the care of children with asthma in a clinical setting.

11:15 AM

Children's Exposure to Environmental Pollutants . . . What's a Pediatrician's Role, Elizabeth J. Neary, MD, MS

Parents often ask their pediatrician questions about the chemicals that their children are being exposed to, from pesticides to contaminants in water. This presentation will prepare you to answer those questions by updating your knowledge of current and emerging environmental issues that impact the health of children. This presentation will also review recent research, offer practical tips for advising parents, and provide resources for your continuing education in environmental health.
