Dermatology: Don’t Miss It! When a Pediatrician Should Worry (27 min.)
<< Return to Courses
Many pediatric care providers are unfamiliar with rare, but serious skin conditions in children. This is either because of the rarity of the conditions or inadequate exposure during pediatric residency or nurse practitioner training. This activity is case-based and focused on rare disorders such as neonatal purpura, neonatal blistering, unusual diaper rashes, lumps or bumps that might be malignant and reactive infectious mucocutaneous eruptions. It provides a thorough approach to skin disorders, emphasizing those a practitioner should worry about.
At the conclusion of this educational program, learners will be able to:
- Identify malignant causes of neonatal purpura.
- Develop a systematic process in the evaluation of a diaper rash.
- Recognize infectious causes of mucocutaneous hypersensitivity reactions.
