Pediatric Neurological Complaints in the Emergency Department

Pittsburgh, PA US
April 13, 2022

This course was designed to provide education because general EDs see only on average 15% pediatric patients of their total volume. This lends to a decrease in knowledge, competency and comfortability in recognizing, diagnosing and managing pediatric neurological conditions. Consistent education is not provided to the differing general EDs in the UPMC system thus pediatric patients may receive different care depending on where they present to
