Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus: A Pharmacotherapy Primer
Staphylococcus aureusis a common pathogen that can infect a variety of body sites, causing skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs), bacteremia and endocarditis, bone and joint infections, pneumonia, and infections of the central nervous system (Liu et al., 2011; Lowy, 1998). A working knowledge of the management of S. aureus infections is important to provide prompt and optimal care, because S. aureus is associated with significant morbidity and mortality and is highly prevalent in both hospital and community settings, and because treatment involves a variety of antibiotics with different mechanisms and toxicities. Antibiotic selection for children is further complicated by unique toxicities and a relative lack of dosing guidance and supporting data.

Sexually Transmitted Infections and Children: What the PNP Should Know
1.0 NAPNAP Contact Hour Sexual abuse is a problem of epidemic proportions in the United States. In their practice, pediatric nurse practitioners will likely encounter children who have experienced sexual abuse—both those who have and have not previously been identified as victims. Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are rare in sexually abused children and adolescents. However, when present, they can be crucial to making the diagnosis of sexual abuse and protecting children. This continuing education article will assist the pediatric nurse practitioner in interpreting the relationship between STIs and sexual abuse, correctly testing for STIs, and treating STIs in children and adolescents.

Resilience
Every child is a unique individual. This individuality is evident in children exposed to psychosocial trauma or adverse childhood experiences. There exists wide variation in the way children respond to toxic stressors in their lives. Some children appear to be relatively unaffected, while others develop a variety of psychological, behavioral, and physical consequences. What is the explanation for this phenomenon? Resiliency has been suggested to explain this variation in pathology expressions in trauma-exposed children. It is vital for pediatric nurse practitioners to understand the concept of resilience. This continuing education offering will define concepts of resilience and stress, explore the neurobiology of resilience, and examine interventions that promote resilience in children.

Challenging Cases in Pediatrics
1.0 NAPNAP Contact Hour 0 Pharmacology Hours The diagnosis and management of children with seemingly common and benign complaints may present a unique challenge to the advanced practice nurse (APN) due to the variability in their unique physiology and development. The challenge to the accurate diagnosis and management is in identifying and differentiating children whose illnesses or injuries are benign from those who have the potential for deterioration and adverse clinical outcomes. This presentation is designed to provide the APN with an overview of critical evidence-based information associated with common, yet high-risk, clinical conditions that may be encountered by an APN in any clinical pediatric setting.

The Power of Language Nutrition for Children's Brain Development, Health, and Future Academic Achievement
1.0 NAPNAP Contact Hour 0 Pharmacology Hours Language Nutrition, a term created to describe language exposure that is rich in quality and quantity and delivered in the context of social interactions, is crucial for a child’s development and is strongly associated with his/her future literacy, academic achievement, and health. However, significant differences in children’s early language environments contribute to disparities in their educational and health trajectories. Interventions, including book distribution programs, coaching parents to enrich their child’s language environment, and public awareness campaigns, have all been shown to positively influence a child’s access to language-rich interactions.Incorporating Language Nutrition coaching and literacy promotion into pediatrics is a promising platform for building the capacity of parents to provide language exposure to their children. By teaching parents both how and why to treat their child as a conversational partner and by modeling such interactions, pediatric health care providers can help parents set their children on a pathway toward literacy, educational success, and health.

Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders: What Pediatric Providers Need to Know
1.0 NAPNAP Contact Hour. Prenatal alcohol exposure is the cause of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs), the prevalence of which is similar to that of other developmental disabilities like Down syndrome and autism. Children, adolescents, and adults who live with the disabilities associated with prenatal alcohol exposure face extraordinary challenges throughout their lives. Pediatric providers need to be able to identify patients with FASD because early recognition and intervention is known to improve life outcomes for affected individuals. The purposes of this continuing education activity are to report what is known about the prevalence of FASDs; to detail the spectrum of problems experienced by affected individuals; and to suggest specific strategies for preventing, identifying, and managing FASDs in clinical practice.

ICD Coding
1.0 NAPNAP Contact Hour 0 Pharmacology Hours The business of primary care practice is ever changing. Evolving evidence-based practice recommendations, quality assurance requirements and reimbursement changes require the healthcare provider to become more business savvy and demand current knowledge of International Classification of Diseases (ICD) changes for 2015. As of October 1, 2015 the new ICD-10 coding is required for all U.S. entities covered by the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPPA). These changes are significant for all practitioners. Not only will coding for a specific illness or condition be more detailed, but there will be a need to give specific and expanded documentation of the illness in order to be reimbursed properly.
