Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Pediatrics Volume 59, Issue 30: Review of Pertussis/Neonatal Infections.
The goals of this program are to improve outcomes and management of pertussis and neonatal HIV and herpes simplex virus infections. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Educate families on the importance of pertussis vaccination to decrease the incidence of infection.
2. Detect infection with Bordetella pertussis early and provide prophylaxis for close contacts to prevent the spread of infection.
3. Select the appropriate diagnostic testing regimen for newborns exposed to HIV.
4. Manage infants who test positive for HIV.
5. Choose the optimal treatment algorithm and subsequent prophylaxis for infants exposed to herpes simplex virus.
The original programs were presented by Ann-Christine (Chris) Nyquist, MD, MSPH, Professor of Pediatrics, Sections of Infectious Disease and Epidemiology; Associate Dean, Diversity and Inclusion, University of Colorado School of Medicine; and Medical Director, Infection Prevention and Control and Occupational Health, Children’s Hospital Colorado, Aurora. Jessica N. Snowden, MD, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, University of Nebraska Medical Center, Children’s Hospital and Medical Center, Omaha.
