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.
