Event Details

Program Description and Target Audience

This conference was created to ensure health care providers are kept up to date with new developments in the field of pediatrics. Topics will include asthma, diabetes, special healthcare needs children and trauma, disasters and children’s responses, autism, cystic fibrosis and children with head injuries in the PICU. Pediatric nurses, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, EMT-P’s and others interested in healthcare needs of children are invited to attend.

 

Asthma is a leading chronic illness among children in the United States. In fact, over seven million American children under the age of 18 years suffer from asthma. Locally, over 525,000 Missouri residents live with asthma (Missouri Asthma Coalition, Missouri Asthma Prevention and Control Program of the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services). A significant need exists for greater control as one in ten school-age children have asthma. Various aspects of the disease will be discussed to assist health care providers develop strategies in providing appropriate care and management, improving overall clinical care and outcomes of children with asthma.

 

 Diabetes is a serious condition with potentially critical complications. About 215,000 people younger than 20 years have diabetes (type 1 or type 2). This represents 0.26% of all people in this age group. The risk of developing type 1 diabetes is higher than virtually all other severe chronic diseases of childhood. Type 2 diabetes in children is a recent phenomenon that is not yet fully understood (National Diabetes Fact Sheet, 2011, 2011).

 

 

Trauma ranks first among all causes of pediatric deaths in ages 0 to 19 years and second in terms of cumulative years of potential life lost before the age of 65.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, the leading cause of death among American children remains accidental injuries (congenital anomalies being the exception). The greatest risk of childhood fatalities is motor vehicle incidents, followed closely by drowning and unintentional fires. Additionally, unintentional injuries are the primary cause of nonfatal injuries treated in hospital emergency departments among children across the nation (Vital Signs: Unintentional Injury Deaths Among Persons Aged 0-19 Years - United States, 2000-2009, 2012). With such frequent occurrences, it is imperative that infant and pediatric health care providers be equipped with the knowledge of caring for such traumatic injuries. According to the CDC there are approximately 750 children with special healthcare needs in each state (CDC, 2012). A child with special healthcare needs presents an additional challenge both emotionally and physiologically in assessing and intervening after a traumatic injury.

 

Center for Disease Control estimates 1 in 88 children has been identified with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD)(Baio, 2012). As healthcare providers provide medical interventions for the child with autism it is imperative to know how to approach the children. A panel of parents whose children are diagnosed with autism will give a perspective to aid the healthcare provider in this aspect.

 

According to the Task Force on Community Preventive Services, exposure to traumatic events such as community violence and natural disasters is a common occurrence among children in the U.S.According to a nationally representative sample of children aged 2–17 years, surveyed at the end of 2002 and early in 2003, one in eight children experienced a form of child maltreatment, one in 12 experienced sexual victimization, and more than one in three witnessed violence or experienced another form of indirect victimization.The psychological harms that may result from exposure to such traumatic events include post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and PTSD symptoms, depressive disorders and symptoms, externalizing behaviors, internalizing behaviors, suicidal ideation, and complicated grief. Traumatic exposures may lead to other health consequences as well, including risk-taking behavior and chronic physical disorders (Task Force, 2008).The reduction of psychological harm caused by exposure to traumatic events should be a goal of all healthcare providers.

 

Approximately 30,000 people in the United States are afflicted with cystic fibrosis and 2,500 new cases are diagnosed each year (Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, 2011). This seminar will explore current treatments, medications and ones on the horizon.

 

The multidisciplinary healthcare team faces significant challenges each time they care for infants and children. By attending this conference, participants will be better equipped with knowledge to readily identify and treat many physical and emotional issues facing infants and children and their families
