Talking About Sex, Drugs, and Rock and Roll
1.0 NAPNAP Contact Hour 0 Pharmacology Hours Adolescence is a time of change, both physically and psychologically, characterized by the child’s struggle to find an identity separate from the family. The largest contributing factors to mortality and morbidity in adolescence are preventable, high-risk behaviors. Despite the development of national preventative guidelines on the care of adolescents, health care providers are not consistently addressing high-risk behaviors during annual health visits. Communication and confidentiality are key in addressing these sensitive topics with adolescents. Practitioners will leave this presentation equipped with practical tips on how to tackle the taboo topics and issues adolescents face.

Should You be Doing ECGs with Your Sports Physicals?
1.25 NAPNAP Contact Hour 0 Pharmacology Hours The U.S. National Registry of Sudden Death in Athletes has identified more than 100 cases of sudden cardiac death per year in young competitive athletes participating in organized sports at the middle school, high school, college and professional levels. Seventy-five percent of all fatalities that occur during sports in the U.S. are cardiovascular related; however, most athletes are asymptomatic with sudden death as the sentinel event. This presentation will discuss the etiology of sudden cardiac death among athletes, the current standard for pre-participation physical evaluation, red flags that warrant further cardiac work-up and the debate over adding ECGs as a routine part of cardiac screening.

Is This Cancer? When to Refer to a Pediatric Oncology Provider
1.0 NAPNAP Contact Hour 0.0 Pharmacology Hours Although childhood cancer is rare, most of these patients will initially present to a primary care provider for evaluation and symptom management. Presenting symptoms are often vague and similar to common childhood illnesses, thus lowering the index of suspicion for cancer. A delay in diagnosis may result in poorer patient outcomes, potential for tumor progression with or without metastases and poorer prognosis. This course will provide information for the primary care provider regarding early cancer recognition and referral to avoid poorer patient outcomes and will discuss the epidemiology of childhood cancer, risk factors and principles of diagnosis including when to worry and how to proceed with work up, which involves awareness of appropriate imaging and referral pattern.
