21st Annual Chronic Illness and Disability Conference: Transition from Pediatric to Adult-Based Care
Oct 29 - 30, 2020 | USD $350.00 | Houston, Texas
21st Annual Chronic Illness and Disability Conference: Transition from Pediatric to Adult-Based Care is organized by Texas Children's Hospital and will be held from Oct 29 - 30, 2020 at Jan and Duncan Neurological Research Institute, Houston, Texas, United States of America. About this Event: Skill preparation and planning for healthcare transition for children and youth with special healthcare needs is inadequate. Less than 50 percent of families nationwide indicate that their children with special healthcare needs have received the services necessary to make appropriate transitions to adult healthcare, work, and independence. One of the major hurdles to receiving this care is the lack of a workforce, including physicians, nurses, social workers, mental health providers and all who provide services to youth and young adults with special healthcare needs trained to provide the services necessary to make the healthcare transition. There is a strong need for physicians to have the knowledge and skills to provide the services needed to facilitate a successful transition from pediatric to adult-based care and services. Because of increased awareness of transitioning to adult-based care, clinicians are required to update their knowledge of the changing strategies for integrating emerging adult-based care into practice. For all conference participants, there will be a discussion of the legal issues involved in healthcare transition, as well as time to meet and talk with faculty in small groups, to exchange ideas among participants, and to share knowledge and information about how best to plan for a successful transition to adulthood.

ACEP Credits Approved by the American College of Emergency Physicians for a maximum of 6 hour(s) of ACEP Category I credit. Description: Central venous catheterization and PICC line insertions can be difficult and can cause serious complications. Central venous cannulation (CVC) is an important procedure in the practice of emergency and critical care medicine. A PICC line is, by definition and per its acronym, a peripherally inserted central catheter, and ultrasound is rapidly becoming a tool of choice for identifying the venous anatomy needed for success. With the increasing ability of bedside ultrasound the technology has proven to reduce error and improve patient care. The Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality, the Institute of Medicine and the National Institute for Health & Clinical Excellence have all endorsed ultrasound-guided central venous cannulation (UGCVC) as a recommended practice. Given the importance of CVC it is paramount that physicians become proficient with UGCVC. Ultrasound guided vascular access is rapidly becoming the standard of care in many medical institutions. Basic ultrasound expertise is invaluable, but there is a whole array of ultrasound procedures that can be performed that will increase your effectiveness and diagnostic accuracy. Go beyond the basics and get the skills you need to expand your effective use of ultrasound in your clinical environment! Participants in this course will benefit from demonstration, hands-on scanning with phantoms where the ultrasound faculty will teach you the essential skills and techniques to perform exams that make a difference in patient outcomes by demonstrating deep vein thrombosis, or need for an intervention that can be done under ultrasound guidance. Course Topics • Venous orientation and pathology to demonstrate DVT • Upper and lower extremities, to include the jugular, subclavian, femoral, saphenous, basilic and superficial veins of the upper extremity • Proper way to compress veins • Use color Doppler to evaluate areas of suspected DVT prior to inserting a line • Central and peripheral line placement • PICC lines will be introduced as important and time saving ways of managing critically ill patients • Hands-on practice will be offered for all topics using phantoms Learning Objectives At the completion of this course, the learner will be able to: • Define deep vein thrombosis and list factors that would put a patient at risk for DVT. • Explain how to place a central line under ultrasound guidance
