Before 2018, there were no U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved medications for managing seizures in Dravet syndrome (DS). Common agents used in the antiepileptic drug regimens of patients with DS included clobazam, valproic acid, topiramate, and levetiracetam, among others; however, these agents alone rarely provide adequate seizure control. Management of seizures in DS changed in recent years with the approval of cannabidiol and stiripentol in 2018 and fenfluramine in 2020. This continuing education article summarizes available efficacy and safety data involving cannabidiol, stiripentol, and fenfluramine and provides a practical review of dosing strategies, pharmacokinetics, and monitoring interventions relevant to their use.

The gynecologic assessment in prepubertal children is an essential element of a thorough physical examination. It is not unusual for pediatric health care providers, including pediatric nurse practitioners (PNPs), to feel challenged by assessing for gynecologic signs and symptoms and performing a physical examination of the external genitalia in prepubertal girls (Bhoopatkar, Wearn, & Vnuk, 2017; Dabson, Magin, Heading, & Pond, 2014; McBain, Pullon, Garrett, & Hoare, 2016). The benefits of routine genital examinations have been discussed in the literature, including increasing patient and caregiver comfort with an examination, improved health care provider skill and confidence with examination and diagnostic assessment, providing a baseline for future examinations, and documentation of previously undiscovered anomalies (Johnson, 2002). This continuing education article will discuss genital examination preparation and techniques, normal prepubertal hymenal variants, common prepubertal gynecologic problems, and genital examination findings concerning abuse.

Eating disorders are complex, potentially life-threatening conditions characterized by disruptive eating behaviors that significantly impact physical and psychosocial functioning. Eating disorders are associated with devastating medical complications and high mortality rates if left untreated. As the prevalence of eating disorders among adolescents continues to increase, it is important that clinicians are knowledgeable about early signs of disordered eating and facilitate timely evaluation and care coordination. The epidemiology, risk factors, and medical complications for common eating disorders in primary care such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and binge eating disorder, are presented. An approach to screening for eating disorders, clinical assessment, and treatment options are outlined. J Pediatr Health Care. (2022) 36, 618−627.

For non- members, this continuing education activity rate is $10. Blunt abdominal trauma constitutes more than 80% of abdominal traumas in childhood. The 2019 Journal of Pediatric Surgery Evidence-based Practice systematic review of the non-operative management of solid organ injuries advises it may be safe to send children with solid organ injuries home sooner with less intervention and supports outpatient management with primary care providers. The management of solid organ injuries has been evolving over the last 10 years and understanding these new Pediatric Surgical Association’s guidelines have implications for advanced practice providers in both primary and acute care settings. The lecture will review the epidemiology of pediatric solid organ injury, the indications for non-operative management and will focus on the recommendations which outpatient pediatric-focused NPs can use to advise families on activity, follow-up and need for emergent re-assessment.
