Adults who were frequently bullied in childhood have an increased frequency of psychiatric disorders, including anxiety, depression, and suicidality, extending into middle age.Bullying is clearly a pediatric health care problem. This continuing education article will explore bullying in terms of definitions, epidemiology, types, risk factors, resilience factors, consequences, and implications for practice.

Newborn Screening for Lysosomal Storage Disorders
1.0 NAPNAP Contact hour, 0.5 Rx hours. Lysosomal storage disorders (LSDs) are a heterogeneous group of approximately 50 rare inheritedmetabolic conditions that result from enzyme deficiencies that interfere with lysosome function. Although often grouped together, there is great variability regarding age of onset, severity, treatment, and outcomes for each disorder and subtype. Currently, laboratory methods are available to test newborns for seven of these conditions. Although newborn screening programs remain state-based, each at a different phase of condition review and implementation, if newborn screening for LSDs has not yet been adopted by the state within which you practice, it likely will. Given the extremely low prevalence and limited provider familiarity with these conditions, this article provides an overview of LSDs and the seven conditions for which newborn screening is available. It offers information about each of the conditions including enzyme deficiency, mode of inheritance, incidence rates, types, clinical course, and available as well as potential treatment options.

Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis: A Focus on Pharmacologic Management
1.50 NAPNAP Contact Hour of which 1.50 contain Pharmacology content. Juvenile idiopathic arthritis is a chronic condition that affects many pediatric patients. It is a prevalent disease and has become the most common rheumatologic disease of childhood. The condition encompasses multiple different forms of chronic arthritides classified based on the location and number of joints affected as well as the presence or lack of a number of different inflammatory markers. The exact etiology is unknown but is thought to be multifactorial with genetic, humoral, and environmental factors playing a keyrole. Many pharmacologic agents are available for use in the treatment of juvenile idiopathic arthritis, with management involving the use of symptom-reducing agents and diseasemodifying antirheumatic drugs. Treatment is not without adverse events, with many of the agents require monitoring regimens and patient education. Without treatment, the progression and chronicity of the disease can result in significant morbidity, with the potential for devastating consequences on the child’s quality of life.

Celiac Disease in the Pediatric Population
0.25 NAPNAP Contact hours. Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder in which the lining of the gastrointestinal tract is damaged by an immunemediated response to gluten proteins (Allen, 2015). It is a polygenetic disease that only appears in genetically susceptible individuals (Newton & Singer, 2012). Celiac disease can present in a spectrum of manifestations, making it difficult to identify and diagnosis. Currently, the only treatment for celiac disease is a strict, gluten-free diet. Further research is warranted in areas of environmental risk factors and treatments (Allen, 2015; Newton & Singer, 2012). J Pediatr Health Care. (2018)
