JPHC CE: Pediatric Psoriasis Comorbidities: Screening Recommendations for the Primary Care Provider
JPHC CE: 1.0 NAPNAP contact hour of which 0.25 contain pharmacology content. Psoriasis, which affects up to 2% of children may be associated with significant comorbidity, including obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, depression, and reduced quality of life. Screening and decision-making require a multidisciplinary approach with the management of potential comorbidities championed by primary care providers and supported by respective specialists and subspecialists. Research into the comorbidities and systemic manifestations has generated significant data culminating in several proposals for a consensus guideline for both pediatric and nonpediatric populations. Our aim is to provide a summary targeted to the pediatric primary care provider from the best available evidence when caring for children with psoriasis. J Pediatr Health Care. (2021) 35, 337−350

Vaping in School: Addressing the Nicotine Use Epidemic Among Middle and High School Youth
1.0 NAPNAP Contact Hour. This continuing education activity rate is 10$. Flavored e-cigarette products are more attractive to kids than cigarettes but are still addicting them to nicotine—and almost half of kids who begin vaping start smoking cigarettes as well. According to the CDC and the National Youth Tobacco Survey, youth e-cigarette use increased tenfold between 2011 and 2015 and the rate of use continues to accelerate. Yet most middle and high school kids, their parents and teachers are not aware that vaping products contain nicotine and are not harmless. This course will inform you about the risks associated with this trend and arm you with strategies to bring to your practices, schools and communities to spread the message that vaping products contain nicotine, which causes addiction, may harm brain development and lead to continued tobacco product use by youth.
