Program Purpose / Objectives
Objectives:

This series of lectures is designed to educate and update the primary care physician on current hot topics relevant to infectious disease in their office practice.

Upon completion, participants should be able to diagnose, treat and perhaps prevent many of the infections commonly seen.

Topics include:
  • Coverage of the newer antibiotics and antivirals used in the US
  • Controversies in pediatric ID (treatment of fever in infants, steroids in meningitis, use of probiotics)
  • Information of identification and treatment of specific pathogens (summertime rashes, MRSA, Lyme, Latent Tuberculosis, influenza) commonly seen such in clinical practice.
The two case reports are taken from classic presentations of illnesses seen in an office practice with discussion of the literature and treatment.

With more of our families traveling we will also discuss published guidelines (sinusitis, OM) travel advice including both antibiotics and vaccines indicated for the different regions of the world.

There will be time for questions related to these topics as well as open discussion regarding pathogens of interest to the attendees. This seminar will be relevant to family practitioners, pediatricians, infectious disease specialists, as well as other health professionals who manage pediatric patients.
