This workshop is intended for all health care professionals or learners in the healthcare professions who provide care for children and adolescents, including pediatricians, family physicians, pediatric and family nurse practitioners, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists, audiologists, social workers, and clinical and developmental psychologists.
Our knowledge of the genetic basis for disease has expanded exponentially in the last few decades, and in the future these discoveries will guide the evaluation and treatment of patients and their families. Therefore, competency in basic clinical genetics is essential for all healthcare professionals. In this workshop, a team-based learning format will provide the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that will help participants integrate genetics into the care that they provide to individuals with neurodevelopmental disabilities. Participants will be expected to devote approximately 2 hours to reviewing webinars and other materials before attending the workshop.
CME/CE credits are available for physicians, psychologists, nurse practitioners, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and social workers.
Participants are asked to view the following webinars and review the following documents before the June 29 workshop. During the workshop you will work in groups to apply information from the webinars to clinical cases, and there will NOT be lectures during the workshop to dispense this information.
