Course Description

COOL TOPICS
This is the twenty-fourth annual conference presented by the California Association of Neonatologists (CAN) and the AAP District IX Section on Neonatal-Perinatal Pediatrics. Internationally recognized speakers will present important clinical topics.

Target Audience
Neonatologists and neonatal nurse practitioners

CPQCC
The 2018 California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative (CPQCC) workshop titled “CPQCC at Cool Topics in Neonatology” will focus on reducing variability in neonatal practice. Lessons from around the State of California will be shared with regard to neonatal abstinence syndrome, cardiac screening and antibiotic stewardship. In addition, erythropoiesis and neurodevelopmental outcomes will be presented and discussed.

Target Audience
The California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative (CPQCC) workshop is geared toward multidisciplinary teams of caregivers from neonatal units that include: neonatologists, pediatricians, neonatal nurse practitioners, registered nurses, with ancillary staff, as well as hospital risk management and quality improvement specialists who can implement change in the management of the topics presented.

Neonatology Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Workshop
Sunday, March 4, 2018

12:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Sunday, March 4, 2018 • 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Chair: Jae Kim, MD, PhD, UC San Diego Jacobs Medical Center & Rady Children’s Hospital of San Diego

We have assembled a didactic/hands-on workshop on the increasing use of neonatology operated bed-side ultrasound. The workshop is aimed at increasing the adoption of these emerging practices in neonatology and facilitate the foundational basis for new and intermediate learners to acquire or improve their ultrasound skills. We will start with a working lunch introduction with box lunches provided after the main CAN session has completed. We will provide didactic lectures that include basics of ultrasound, cardiac views, non-cardiac views, and clinical applications/scenarios. The second half of the workshop will offer close learning at several teaching stations that will cover cardiac, non-cardiac and clinical applications. An ample number of instructors and live models will be present to provide a solid practical experience for participants.

REGISTRATION FOR THIS WORKSHOP IS SEPARATE FROM THE COOL TOPICS IN NEONATAL MEETING

Registration for the workshop is only accepted online at http://www.cme.ucla.edu click on Cool Topics in Neonatology; then click on the workshop button. The fee is $150 (includes box lunch) and there is no refund.

Space is limited to 30 participants and applications will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis.

Attendees who register and pay will receive a separate confirmation for the workshop which will guarantee entrance. Open to Cool Topics attendees only.

  • Apply newer data to the evolving management of the patent ductus

CPQCC

At the conclusion of the program, participants should be able to:

  • Identify strategies to optimize non-pharmacologic and pharmacologic management of neonatal abstinence syndrome
  • Describe the benefit of utilizing clinical vignettes in identifying variation in physician practice
  • Review the neuroprotective mechanisms of ESAs on the term infant brain

Disclosures

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is "truly independent" and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that nonpromotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program's participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy mandates that the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.
