Despite evidence that digital screening improves the diagnosis of growth disorders, late diagnosis and referral of patients continues to be prevalent.
Professor Savage was joined by growth disorder and digital health specialists to address resistant factors to the adoption of technology, and demonstrate how, despite a lack of published data on the efficacy of digital tools, supporting evidence of their effectiveness in other endocrine disorders, such as diabetes, can also be applied to paediatric growth disorder management.
|Introduction and current practice gaps in management of short stature
|Digital interpretation of primary care height measurements to facilitate early diagnosis
|Application of digital resources to growth disorder management
|Growth hormone adherence management using digital technology
|Discussion and Q & A
This webcast is suitable for, but not limited to, clinical paediatric endocrinologists, clinical adult endocrinologists, paediatric endocrine nurses, and all other healthcare professionals interested in the management of growth disorders in childhood and transition.
After watch the webcast, learners will be able to:
- Explain current practice gaps in the management of short stature
- Gain knowledge of digital programming of primary care height measurement to detect abnormalities of growth.
- Gain awareness of and confidence in the use of digital technology to improve management of growth, as well as patient self-management
- Debate what can be learnt from the use of digital tools in other endocrine disorders
This only applies to the live webinar.
The Digital developments and precision medicine in paediatric growth disorder management webinar (live streaming), United Kingdom, 05/11/2020-05/11/2020 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 1 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.
Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
