Elements of Competence
This CME activity has been designed to change learner knowledge and performance focusing on the American Board of Medical Specialties areas of medical knowledge and practice based learning and improvement.
This activity was designed to meet the needs of primary care providers including physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and other health care providers who participate in the care of the pediatric and adolescent patients.
Statement of Need
The field of pediatric medicine is continually changing, resulting in knowledge and performance gaps between current practice and best practice recommendations. For the general pediatrician and the family practice physician access to updates in state-of-the-art pediatric medicine is critical to providing optimal patient care resulting in knowledge and performance gaps between current practice and best practice recommendations. In addition to feedback from past conferences and grand rounds programs, results of a survey of Wisconsin-based physicians indicated great interest in these topics. Furthermore, the members of the conference planning committee, considered experts in this field, identified issues that have seen significant advances in recent years and that will be most applicable to attendees’ clinical work.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint sponsorship of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health and the American Family Children’s Hospital.
