The Steven J. Parker Memorial Developmental-Behavioral Pediatric Conference: Clinical Problems in Primary Care 2019
Mar 08 - 09, 2019 | CME 13.00 | USD $495 | Boston, Massachusetts
The Steven J. Parker Memorial Developmental-Behavioral Pediatric Conference: Clinical Problems in Primary Care is organized by Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) and will be held from Mar 08 - 09, 2019 at Boston University Charles River Campus, Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is Primary care physicians, pediatricians, pediatric nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, social workers, child mental health professionals and family nurse practitioners. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 13.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Boston University School of Medicine in conjunction with Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center is proud to present the annual Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics program. Educational Needs Addressed: Developmental-behavioral conditions are common, affecting ∼15% of US children. The prevalence and complexity of these conditions are increasing despite long wait times and a limited pipeline of new providers. The recent AAP report on the DBP workforce recognized the growing challenge facing the US health system in providing care for these children and families. The viability of the DBP subspecialty requires strategies to maintain and expand the workforce, improve clinical efficiency, and prevent burnout. To do this effectively requires expanding the skill and knowledge base among primary care clinicians from a wide variety of professions to meeting the growing demands. In addition, children with special health care needs are a population that has received recent focus in attention and need as the medical home and accountable care are both designed to improve care for these complex children. A recent study showed that among CSHCN, especially for families living in poverty, a significant amount of their care is provided by family members thus the clinicians ultimately providing care must provide educational and emotional support to these same families. Early identification of developmental disorders is critical to the well-being of children and their families. In a time when the DBP workforce is failing to grow at the rate of identification, much of this screening and early identification is falling to complex systems of primary care requiring increased clinician knowledge in the area. It is an integral function of the primary care medical home and an appropriate responsibility of all pediatric health care professionals. Early intervention is available for a wide range of developmental disorders; their prompt identification can spur specific and appropriate therapeutic interventions but the primary care clinician remains the home base for these complex families Identification of a developmental disorder and its underlying etiology may also affect a range of treatment planning, from medical treatment of the child to family planning for his or her parents. In order to identify a delay, pediatric clinicians need to be aware of what problems exist and how they manifest as well as how to provide ongoing treatment and support. Of nearly 7.4 million children in the United States diagnosed with emotional, behavioral, or developmental conditions, a disproportionate number do not get the mental health services they need because they are underinsured, according to a new report released by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). The study also finds that boys, adolescents, and children from low-income families are affected by conditions such as depression or Attention Deficit Disorder at higher rates than other children, but that adequate health services for these children remain an unmet need. In addition transition issues for these same children are of paramount importance and complexity. In addition in the last five years with the mandate of the Affordable Care Act, there has been increased emphasis on the importance of integrated behavioral health. Behavioral health and physical health are inter-related; providing behavioral health care in a primary medical care setting can reduce stigma and discrimination, be cost-effective and lead to improved patient outcomes. Despite their high need for mental health services, children and families living in poverty are least likely to be connected with high-quality mental health care. Pediatric primary care providers are in a unique position to take a leading role in addressing disparities in access to mental health care because many low-income families come to the first to address mental health concerns but they need the knowledge to identify and begin treatment of these problems. This year we will have two cutting-edge modules to address these issues: one specifically on Communication in Primary Care and another on Transitions for Children and Youth With Disabilities both will specifically address increasing knowledge, skills, and attitudes among primary care clinicians to address DBP challenges. Educational Objectives: Through lectures and question and answer sessions, participants at the conclusion of this conference will be able to: • Describe the latest clinical information on developmental and behavioral issues in children and families • Identify such problems in their practice and work settings • Choose and provide appropriate treatment for such issues.
