1.5 NAPNAP Contact Hour. This continuing education activity is offered at a reduced rate to NAPNAP Members. This continuing education activity rate is $15 for NAPNAP Members. For non- members, this continuing education activity rate is $30. Studies show cardiac consideration is an often overlooked area of assessment for youth and student athletes alike, with practitioners and parents largely unfamiliar with warning signs and risk factors that require follow up. Alarming, considering 1 in 300 youth has an undetected heart condition that puts them at risk for sudden cardiac arrest, with more than half of youth stricken presenting with missed or misdiagnosed symptoms. New pediatric care guidelines recommend all youth be screened during checkups and preparticipation sports physicals, which requires practitioners to understand how to conduct a comprehensive physical and history by being familiar with warning signs and family risk factors as well as recommended diagnostic follow-up. This course provides evidence-based cardiac risk assessment protocol to incorporate into your practice with an in-depth discussion of how you can protect young hearts and equip youth to be their own heart health advocate.

1.25 NAPNAP Contact Hour. This continuing education activity is offered at a reduced rate to NAPNAP Members. This continuing education activity rate is 12.5$ for NAPNAP Members. For non- members, this continuing education activity rate is 25$. This presentation will provide the definition of a variety of blood issues and how those diagnoses may impact primary care. Specific diagnoses will include Sickle Cell disease, Thalassemia, Hemophilia, vonWillebrand Disease and Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP). The presentation will help the primary care provider understand the lab results that support a diagnosis as well as how primary care can assist the family. The presenter will share diagnostic lab review for each process. There will also be a hematology management overview and application to the primary care setting.

For non- members, this continuing education activity rate is 20$. The hand is one of the most frequently injured parts of a child's body, accounting for approximately 15% of pediatric fractures and 2.3% of all pediatric emergency room visits. Early recognition along with appropriate and timely management of these injuries is necessary in order to prevent potential functional deficits or cosmetic deformities. The presenter will provide clinical pearls for evaluating pediatric/adolescent hand injuries and review current treatment recommendations for both definitive care as well as initial management in the primary care and acute care emergency room settings.

It is imperative that NPs become business entrepreneurs and establish their own practices. This presentation will introduce NPs to the business side of practice ownership and entrepreneurial skills necessary to promote a practice.

Cough, both acute and chronic, is one of the most common complaints in the primary and acute care settings. Cough can be stressful and instigate fear and sleepless nights for both children and parents. Early and accurate diagnosis, as well as appropriate therapeutic management, is imperative.

For non- members, this continuing education activity rate is 20$. More than 22 million people are employed in an agricultural-related field, which is one of our nation’s most dangerous industries and the only worksite where children can be present. Every day, 33 children are seriously injured and every three days, a child dies in agricultural-related incidents. The presenters will use case studies to provide a hands-on workshop enabling participants to explore the incidence and causes of child injuries/fatalities and provide access to free, scientifically based anticipatory guidance materials and agricultural safety resources.

At a time where clinicians need to reduce cost while improving outcomes, this presentation will review evidence-based care to promote best outcomes in patients with cerebral palsy. The presenter will discuss identification and management of conditions such as hip subluxation, osteoporosis and spasticity as part of an interdisciplinary team. Topics will include pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic intervention, imaging and assessment tools. The presentation will also examine use of telehealth to support family-centered care of these medically complex patients.

For non- members, this continuing education activity rate is 20$. Despite safety measures, unintentional ingestions continue to disproportionally affect children less than 5 years of age. Toddlers and preschoolers are at an increased risk for fatal ingestions, and rapid identification and mitigation of such toxic ingestions is essential to the practice of pediatric-focused providers in the acute care setting. This presentation aims to review and outline fatal toxidromes in this age group, as well as discuss epidemiological trends of toxic substance ingestions within the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The current faculty vacancy average rate is nearly 8 percent with 90 percent of those vacancies seeking doctorly-prepared candidates. Considering transitioning from the clinic to the classroom? Thinking about an adjunct or part-time faculty role to balance with practice or perhaps a full-time academic position with a faculty practice? This presentation will give you practical career advice, comparing both clinical and research tracks, giving you a survival guide for academia from an experienced faculty member.
