JPHC CE: COVID-19: Impacts and Implications for Pediatric Practice
0.75 NAPNAP contact hour. This continuing education activity is offered free to NAPNAP Members. For non- members, this continuing education activity rate is 10$. Since the rapid emergence of the novel coronavirus in December of 2019 and subsequent development of a global pandemic, clinicians around the world have struggled to understand and respond effectively in health care systems already strained before this latest viral outbreak. Leaders are making policy decisions while balancing the slow and precise nature of science with the rapid need for lifesaving information. Pediatric nurse practitioners are ideally situated as a trusted source of health information for children. This continuing education article summarizes the latest evidence on the rapidly developing coronavirus pandemic. J Pediatr Health Care.(2020) 34, Issue 6, p619-629

JPHC CE: Pediatric Psoriasis Comorbidities: Screening Recommendations for the Primary Care Provider
1.0 NAPNAP Contact Hour of which 0.25 contain Pharmacology content. This continuing education activity is offered free to NAPNAP Members. For non- members, this continuing education activity rate is $10. 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

JPHC CE: Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis: Early Intervention and Referral
0.75 NAPNAP Contact Hour. This continuing education activity is offered free to NAPNAP Members. For non- members, this continuing education activity rate is 10$. Slipped capital femoral epiphysis is the most common hip pathology in children aged 8−15 years old. Research has shown that when a nonorthopedic provider evaluates this patient population, there can be a significant delay in the appropriate treatment, which may have serious consequences for the prognosis of the patient. The delays are often caused by the practitioner’s inability to put the clinical picture into focus with regard to how these patients typically present.. This article presents the demographics, clinical presentation, differential diagnosis, radiological and physical examination techniques, and prevention strategies to recognize this condition and provide early intervention.

0.5 contact hour of which 0.5 contain pharmacology content and 0.5 controlled substances.This continuing education activity is offered free to NAPNAP Members. For non- members, this continuing education activity rate is $10. Urine drug screening (UDS) is a laboratory test frequently used to screen for drugs of abuse, monitor for medication compliance, evaluate for suspected drug intoxication or overdose, and in office-based pain contracts (Kale, 2019; Standridge, Adams, & Zotos, 2010). In children and adolescents,UDS may be used to prevent substance use, evaluate for suspected drug use or intoxication, or as part of substance abuse treatment (Levy & Siqueira, 2014). When using UDS as a tool to make clinical decisions about high-risk medications, it is important to understand the differences between UDS testing modalities, common causes of falsepositive or false-negative results, and the detection window of specific medications. There are two commonly used types of UDS available: immunoassay and gas chromatography/ mass spectrometry (GC-MS; Kale, 2019).

For non- members, this continuing education activity rate is 15$. Often times, parents present to pediatric care providers with concerns regarding the appearance of their children’s legs, feet, or gait. This presentation will lay the foundation of lower extremity examination through reviewing the normal patterns of development in children. Benign causes of physiologic lower extremity and gait variations will be differentiated from pathologic causes. Learners will be able to accurately evaluate lower extremity variations, provide education and reassurance regarding the natural history of normal physiologic development and recognize red flags for pathologic deformities that require emergency care and referrals.

Magnesium Treatment in Pediatric Patients
0.75 NAPNAP Contact Hour of which contains 0.75 pharmacology content.. This continuing education activity is offered free to National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) Members. For non- members, this continuing education activity rate is $10. Magnesium is the second most abundant intracellular cation in the body, and the fourth most abundant cation. Sixty percent of total body magnesium is stored in bone, 20% is located in skeletal muscle and the remaining 20% is distributed in various organ tissues, including the kidney, liver, and heart (Grober, Schmidt, & Kisters, 2015). Approximately 0.3% of magnesium is found in the serum (Grober et al., 2015). Therefore, determination of the serum magnesium concentration remains the best readily available test for magnesium deficiency, although it provides only an estimate of total body magnesium stores.This review article provides an overview of key disease states in pediatric patients where magnesium is part of the treatment. The treatment of hypomagnesemia and hypermagnesemia will be described, with review of dosing and timing of magnesium administration. J Pediatr Health Care. (2021) 35, 564-571.

Multidisciplinary Approach to Disordered Feeding
1.0 NAPNAP Contact Hour. This continuing education activity is offered at a reduced rate to NAPNAP Members. This continuing education activity rate is $10 for NAPNAP Members. For non- members, this continuing education activity rate is $20. Disordered feeding is a concern frequently encountered by the pediatric primary care provider during a routine well child checkup. Disordered feeding can range from mild food avoidant behaviors easily managed in an outpatient clinic setting to severe behavioral challenges requiring inpatient treatment.  Utilization of a multidisciplinary team is crucial in helping children with moderate to severe feeding disorders.  In this module a team consisting of a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner, Dietitian and 2 Psychologists review the current state of the art of care for kids with disordered eating.  Nannette Martin APRN is an independent feeding consultant that recently started her own feeding disorder practice.  Mary Beth Feuling MS, RD is an advanced practice dietitian from Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and is an expert in the nutritional assessment of children with restricted diets.  In the final presentation, Psychologists Robert Demptser and Parker Husted, will discuss the behavioral management of this population.  Both Rob and Parker were instrumental in establishing the current inpatient feeding program at Nationwide Children's Hospital.
