Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Pediatrics Volume 59, Issue 29: Review of Tuberculosis/ Influenza.
The goals of this program are to improve diagnosis and treatment of tuberculosis in children, and to reduce morbidity and mortality associated with influenza by encouraging universal vaccination. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Choose an appropriate diagnostic test for tuberculosis, based on the patient’s age and previous vaccine history.
2. Interpret results of tuberculin skin tests.
3. Provide appropriate treatment to children who test positive for tuberculosis.
4. Determine whether a patient with influenza is at high risk for morbidity and mortality.
5. Follow recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for patients with confirmed or suspected H7N9 influenza.
The original programs were presented by Stephen C. Eppes, MD, Professor of Pediatrics, Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia, PA, and Chief, Department of Pediatric Infectious Diseases, Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, Wilmington, DE. Walter A. Orenstein, MD, Professor of Medicine, Pediatrics, and Global Health; Assistant Director, Emory Vaccine Center, and; Director, Emory Vaccine and Policy and Development, Emory University School of Medicine, Atlanta, GA .
