Second Pediatric Clinical Core Curriculum Session to Cover the Latest Guidelines, Best Practices for Treating Sleep Disorders in Infants

The overall theme of this year’s Pediatric Core Curriculum at the ATS 2023 International Conference is lung disease in infants. The second session of three in this series will be held on Tuesday, May 23, from noon–1 p.m. ET in West Salon G-I (Street Level) of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

“Our presentations for day two are paired very nicely because both focus on the various presentations of sleep disorders in infancy,” said Pediatric Core Curriculum Chair Jane Gross, MD, PhD, a pediatric pulmonologist at National Jewish Health.

Featured presentations include:

  • Obstructive Sleep Disorders in Infants, Mariana Bedoya, MD, Vanderbilt University Medical Center
  • Central Sleep Disorders in Infants, Melissa A. Maloney, MD, University of Utah Health

“Sleep-disordered breathing is part of the baseline knowledge a pediatric pulmonologist should know, but because there is a subspecialty of sleep within pediatric pulmonology, many people do not keep up with the most up-to-date recommendations and evidence-based care guidelines because it’s not their primary job,” Dr. Gross explained. “However, it is something we all see and need to recognize when we’re evaluating patients.”

Throughout the three sessions of the Pediatric Core Curriculum, attendees will learn about the diagnosis and management of central and obstructive sleep disorders in infants, best practices for managing and treating pulmonary hypertension in infants, and standards of care for treating bronchopulmonary dysplasia in the neonatal ICU and post-NICU period.

The goal of the Core Curriculum series is to support clinicians engaged in the Maintenance of Certification activities by providing updates on subjects included in recertification requirements.

The topics are aligned with corresponding MOC Medical Knowledge modules. This symposium is designed to help clinicians stay up to date with important information relevant to their medical practices and provide clinicians an opportunity to evaluate their knowledge and skills while earning MOC points.

This session is worth one CME credit and one MOC point. CME certificates of credit/attendance will be awarded based on the participant attending the activity, submitting a completed evaluation, and attesting to the credits earned. A CME certificate will be available upon successful completion of all three components. For MOC points, participants must attend the session(s) and complete the corresponding evaluation and post-test for the activity with a passing score.

The third session of the Pediatric Core Curriculum will be held on Wednesday, May 24, from 11 a.m.–noon in the same location as sessions one and two.
