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.

Abdominal Pain in the Adolescent Female - Gynecologic Concerns
1.25 NAPNAP Contact Hour 0 Pharmacology Hours Chronic abdominal complaints are a frequent concern of adolescents and young adults. The differential diagnosis of chronic abdominal pain in adolescents has significant overlap with causes in adults, although there are special considerations unique to adolescents such as outflow tract obstruction. It is important for all providers who care for adolescents in primary care, specialty or emergency settings to be familiar with both gynecologic and non-gynecologic causes of chronic abdominal pain.

Bullying: What the PNP Needs to Know
Despite generations of doubt about the true impact of bullying, it is now clear that childhood bullying can have significant lifelong consequences for victims and bullies alike. Recent school shootings and suicides by students who have been victims of bullying have helped to solidify public awareness of the gravity of the problem of childhood bullying. 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.
