Jenny Radesky, MD

Jenny Radesky is an Assistant Professor at Michigan Medicine: C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. She completed her Medical Degree at Harvard Medical School, her residency at University of Washington, and a Developmental Behavioral Pediatrics Fellowship at Boston University. Dr. Radesky's research focuses on how the parent-child relationship and digital media use interact to shape child social-emotional outcomes. Using a combination of methodologies, including epidemiology, qualitative methods, videotape behavioral coding, and mobile passive sensing, her work has shown associations between self-regulation problems in infants and heavy use of screen media; higher use of mobile devices to soothe toddlers with social-emotional delays; and associations between heavy parent mobile media use, less parent-child interaction, and more negative child behavior. She was awarded the Academic Pediatric Association Bright Futures Young Investigator Award in 2013 to conduct interviews with parents regarding household digital technology use, child behavior, and family dynamics. The results of that project contributed to the new Bright Futures Guidelines (4th Edition) and the new American Academy of Pediatrics policy statement on digital media.

Overall Conference Objective

Provide physicians, nurses and other health care providers with up-to-date information on new trends and developments in the
prevention and treatment of childhood and adolescent diseases.

Educational Objectives

  • Participants will be able to independently and consistently identify state-of-the-art, evidence-based practices influencing prevention, diagnosis and treatment in developmental and behavioral pediatric medicine.
  • Participants will be able to assess their current clinical practices and determine if the research applies to their patient population in order to evaluate the need to make changes to their standard of care.
  • Participants will identify and discuss with colleagues trends in pediatric medicine and formulate plans to incorporate them into their practice.

Elements of Competence

This continuing education (CE) activity is designed to change learner competence and focuses on the American Board of Medical Specialties areas of medical knowledge, and practice-based learning and improvement. This activity also focuses on the interprofessional competencies of interprofessional communication and teams/teamwork.

Target Audience/Scope of Practice

This activity is 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 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, family practice physician, advance practice providers, nurses, and other members of the healthcare team 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.
