The Seventh Evidence-Based Pediatric Update Symposium

Date & Location

Saturday, November 14, 2020, 7:30 AM - 2:00 PM


A wide range of diseases and conditions that affect children and adolescents cause significant mortality and morbidity. These diseases present challenges to clinicians who diagnose and manage patients with these disorders on a daily basis. Providers must be able to identify, diagnose, treat, and refer when necessary, a wide range of pediatric conditions. In addition to the significant morbidity and mortality that can occur without proper diagnosis and treatment, health care costs can be increased due to unnecessary testing and improper referral.

This activity will highlight the latest diagnostic techniques and management strategies that impact the care of patients with common and complex pediatric disorders. The latest clinical research findings and their application to clinical practice will also be presented.

Armed with the information from this activity, clinicians will be able to make timely diagnostic, treatment and referral decisions in the context of patient choice and the resources within their communities. In addition, providers will be able to prepare patients and their caretakers for what to expect from recommended testing, consultations and treatment plans.
