Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Pediatrics Volume 59, Issue 11: Abdominal Pain/Constipation.
The goals of this program are to improve the management of chronic abdominal pain and constipation in children. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Classify functional gastrointestinal (GI) disorders that are associated with abdominal pain based on the Rome III criteria.
2. Rule out organic causes of abdominal pain based on history, physical examination, and laboratory testing.
3. Incorporate stress management into the treatment of functional abdominal pain.
4. Recognize physical examination findings that distinguish organic disease from functional constipation.
5. Recommend the most appropriate options for treatment of constipation.
The original programs were presented by Kenneth L. Cox, MD, Professor of Pediatrics, Chief, Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Nutrition, and Hepatology, and Senior Associate Dean of Pediatric and Obstetric Clinical Affairs, Stanford University School of Medicine, and Chief Medical Officer, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, Palo Alto, CA, and Christine Carter-Kent, MD, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Division of Pediatric Gastroenterology/Nutrition, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston.
