This course presents the state of the art in Pediatric Emergency Medicine by faculty of the Boston Children’s Hospital’s Division of Emergency Medicine. The goal of this course is to engage clinicians practicing pediatric emergency medicine, including emergency physicians, acute care pediatricians, emergency medicine residents, pediatric emergency medicine fellows, physician assistants and licensed nurse practitioners. Nationally recognized faculty will virtually deliver didactic presentations, facilitate small group interactive case discussions, and run simulations of acute cases and virtual emergency medicine procedure training.

Course Format
Presented online via Zoom, this course is designed to optimize virtual interactions between faculty and participants and facilitate interactive discussions. Evidence-based practices will be presented for essential common and critical conditions related to the care of children. In addition, the simulation sessions will teach important clinical and procedural skills in the management of acutely ill children.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be better able to: 
  1. Integrate thoughtful approaches to the evaluation and management of pediatric stroke.
  2. Evaluate the current management of pediatric sepsis focusing on early goal-directed therapy and strategies to improve recognition and outcomes.
  3. Review diagnostic approaches and management strategies for critically ill newborns and children, including life support guidelines.
  4. Recognize renal emergencies specific to children and implement appropriate management.
  5. Demonstrate an understanding of different presentations of children and adults with acute illness and injury.

  7. Employ strategies for optimizing analgesia and sedation of children in the ED setting.
  8. Apply an evidence based approach to the evaluation and management of neonates and infants/toddlers with fever.
  9. Demonstrate an understanding of important literature which impacts and informs pediatric acute care.
  10. Apply reasoned approaches to the diagnosis and management of newborn emergencies.
  11. Practice reasoned approaches to the diagnosis and management of pediatric poisonings and understand new and emerging threats.
  12. Demonstrate physical examination techniques to evaluate common orthopedic complaints.
  13. Recognize common pitfalls in diagnostic radiology in pediatric emergency medicine.
  14. Apply techniques for performing critical pediatric airway procedures.
  15. Employ reasoned approaches to the evaluation of cardiac emergencies in children.
