Workshop: "Clinical Genetics for the Pediatric Healthcare Professional"
6/29/2013, 7:30 am - 2:00 pm
"Clinical Genetics for the Pediatric Healthcare Professional" will be held on Saturday, June 29, from 7:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m. in Room 241 of the Vanderbilt Kennedy Center/One Magnolia Circle Building.
This workshop is intended for all health care professionals or learners in the healthcare professions who provide care for children and adolescents, including pediatricians, family physicians, pediatric and family nurse practitioners, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists, audiologists, social workers, and clinical and developmental psychologists.
Our knowledge of the genetic basis for disease has expanded exponentially in the last few decades, and in the future these discoveries will guide the evaluation and treatment of patients and their families. Therefore, competency in basic clinical genetics is essential for all healthcare professionals. In this workshop, led by Tyler Reimschisel, M.D.,a team-based learning format will provide the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that will help participants integrate genetics into the care that they provide to individuals with neurodevelopmental disabilities.
Participants will be expected to devote approximately 2 hours to reviewing webinars and other materials before attending the workshop.
CME/CE credits are available for physicians, psychologists, nurse practitioners, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists, audiologists, and social workers. Cost to attend the workshop is $50. Please register for this conference by visiting the VKC Events page. For more information, contact Pam Grau.
