23rd Annual Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics: Topics for Primary Care (JS2203B)
The half-day virtual/video, live-streamed conference will highlight common developmental-behavioral conditions, their etiology, identification, and management. Presenters will update providers on new developments and enhance their understanding of developmental conditions pertinent to primary care settings, and will feature opportunities to apply knowledge in clinical situations. The program will utilize Interactive Online live Q&A in addition to PowerPoint presentations. Ample time will be allowed for discussion between the audience and the faculty. Since as many as 40% of primary care visits include developmental or behavioral concerns, this course is designed to meet the educational needs of these providers: pediatricians, family practitioners, advanced practice nurses, physician assistants, and health care professionals providing direct care to children.
