2018 Pediatric Spring Conference
Join Aurora Childern's Health for a half-day course focused on the latest updates in children’s health. We’ll cover topics such as hypertension, voiding and daytime wetness, and behavioral health.
The course will also feature a special PATCH (Providers and Teens Communicating for Health) for Provider's Workshop. In this 90-minute workshop, PATCH Teen Educators share their authentic insights into the concerns, preferences, and realities of today's youth in health care settings. Participants are asked to reflect on their own policies and practice and are challenged to consider ways in which they could be more "youth-friendly". Health care providers from a variety of fields are encouraged to attend and participate in this workshop.
This conference is designed for:
- Pediatric Primary Care and Specialty Care Physicians and APPs
- Family Medicine Physicians and APPs
At the end of the lectures, participants will be able to:
- Better understand, identify and treat pediatric hypertension in the general pediatric office.
- Apply treatment options on Dysfunctional Voiding and Daytime Wetness in Children
- Screen and treat common mental health issues in children.
By the end of the PATCH (Providers and Teens Communicating for Health) for Provider's Workshop, participants will be able to:
- Facilitate open, honest, and effective communication with teens by increasing their knowledge about the concerns, fears, preferences, and priorities of teen patients.
- Demonstrate increased confidence in their own ability to provide high-quality care to teens by creating a confidential, non-judgmental environment that allows teens to be open, honest, and feel supported.
- Demonstrate behavioral intentions to utilize knowledge, skills, and resources to create a confidential, non-judgmental health care environment that allows teens to be open, honest, and to feel supported.
