    Mass Medical Society; 860 Winter Street

    This course is designed to meet the physicians', physician assistants', nurse practitioners', nurses' and other health care providers' need for enhanced knowledge and competence and improved performance in caring for patients with common surgical problems in multiple pediatric surgical subspecialties. It is designed to address the common issues seen by the practicing pediatrician, physician assistant, nurse practitioner and/or nurse in their daily practice. It allows the attendee to enhance his/her ability to make a surgical diagnosis, improve their initial screening process, and increase their knowledge of when to refer to a specialist. The speakers also touch upon the latest literature information on their respective subjects.

    The course is designed based on feedback received from the practicing pediatricians and surveys from past conferences. Interactive learning formats such as Q&A, small group discussions and didactic lectures will be provided.

  • Pediatric Simulation at the Point of Care: Multi-Day Instructor Workshop for Simulation Center (3/11/19-3/13/19)

    Monday, March 11, 2019 8 AM - 5 PM

    This comprehensive and interactive three-day course provides interdisciplinary instructional training in pediatric simulation and debriefing for novice through expert faculty and covers major aspects of hospital-based and in-situ/point-of-care high-fidelity pediatric simulation.It builds from the ground up beginning with practical aspects of adult learning theory applied to simulation-based education in order to provide a framework for simulation as a robust teaching tool. All material presented on adult learning theory is derived from leaders in the field including David Kolb, Malcolm Knowles and Donald Schon. It provides participants with an introduction to Crisis Resource Management and teamwork among interdisciplinary teams modeled after the aviation industry’s Crew Resource Management.

  • Pediatric Asthma and Allergy Updates for Primary Care Providers

    Friday, March 15, 2019 8 AM - 3 PM
    Folkman Auditorium at Boston Children's Hospital

    Asthma is the most common chronic illness of childhood, affecting almost 7 million children in the United States. Poorly controlled asthma limits activities, interferes with school attendance and can result, all too often, in emergency department visits and hospitalizations. Our challenge remains to provide safe and effective treatment of asthma and allergies. We developed this program to provide a forum to discuss current topics related to the diagnosis and management of pediatric asthma and allergy with primary care providers, who care for the majority of these children.Topics Include:

    • Wheezing in the Very Young
    • Studies in the Primary Prevention of Asthma
    • Reducing Healthcare Utilization for Children with Persistent Asthma
    • Allergic Rhinitis
    • Office Based Spirometry (With a Live Demonstration) and more

  • Effective Pediatric Pain Management and End of Life Care 2019

    Saturday, March 23, 2019 7 AM - 2 PM
    Folkman Auditorium at Boston Children's Hospital

    Many of the concepts and treatment strategies of pediatric pain have changed. Children can respond to, and remember painful experiences similar to adults, and while predictable pain problems are now more reliably treated, a gap still exists in assessing and managing chronic pediatric pain, making children’s pain chronically under-treated. Several clinical studies have demonstrated the deleterious effects from not providing adequate pain control in children. Consequently, adequate pain assessment and management requires special effort in terms of careful assessment, communication, patient education, appreciation of exceptions, and modification of therapies.

    The Effective Pediatric Pain Management and End of Life Care course is designed for clinicians in the primary or sub-specialty care setting who may identify and treat pediatric patients with various painful conditions and provide end of life care.

    The educational format will include live didactic lectures, interesting case presentations and panel case discussions with the goals of reviewing opioid treatment strategies, evaluating opioids and non-opioids treatment options, applying current pain management guidelines, developing strategies for addiction treatment, and incorporating best practices for palliative care in the pediatric population.
