This activity is designed to provide Pediatric healthcare providers a working knowledge of pediatric neurological conditions to ensure patients are managed effectively. The pediatric healthcare provider will enhance knowledge about discussed pediatric neurological conditions and provide specific techniques that will help them manage these children.
Learners will be able to discuss etiology, pathophysiology, assessment, treatment plans and evaluation of infants and children with select neurological conditions. Learners will identify how evidence based communication and interprofessional teams including support groups, can improve care of children with neurological disorders.
