Interpreting Pediatric Labs and Radiographs Course Description

Presented by Rita Marie John, EdD, DNP, CPNP, PMHS and Maureen Madden, MSN, RN, CPNP-AC, CCRN, FCCM

Diagnostic Labs session is designed to improve the use of diagnostic testing for the pediatric-focused APRN. Using cases from clinical practice, participants will determine which lab tests are or are not helpful in establishing a diagnosis. Radiographs play an integral role in diagnosis and management in the pediatric patient, in particular within the acute care setting. With training and practice, you will learn to recognize radiographic patterns and distinguish normal versus abnormal presentations. You will learn a systematic method to assess and interpret pediatric radiographs of the chest and abdomen. We will end the day with diagnostic testing and interpretation case studies to test the knowledge you've gained at the symposium.

Pediatric Rx Course Description

Presented by Teri Moser Woo, PhD, CPNP, CNL, FAANP

Our expert faculty, Dr. Teri Moser Woo, will lead an extensive review and provide an improved understanding of therapeutic benefits and risks, including efficacy, safety and prescribing recommendations with individual presentations related to respiratory, GI, immunizations, antibiotics, psychotropics and nutraceuticals used with children.​
