Join us at the Cleveland Clinic Pediatric Innovation Summit

About the Summit

The Cleveland Clinic Children’s Pediatric Innovation Summit presents an evidence-based review and update of topics in pediatric care recently impacted by new data, screening tools, and/or treatments. It is targeted to health care providers looking for an in-depth analysis of the crucial data and clinical practice implications by the top experts in their fields. The Summit will also highlight, through a panel discussion, the future of pediatric health care during a panel discussion facilitated by leaders in the health care field.

Of special significance, there will be a keynote address by the President-Elect of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Attached to the Summit are individual symposiums on Thursday and Saturday that learners may register for independent of the Summit.

Held on Friday and Saturday, this Summit will focus on the most important clinical practice innovations in the past year with sessions focused on a review of the medical literature and an immunization update. Other related topics include clinical practice updates in diagnosis and management of neonatal conditions, puberty, common urologic problems, dermatology, ophthalmology, and care of the medically complex child.

Attendees registering for the Summit are able to attend additional symposiums at no additional fee.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Summarize recently published public health reports related to pediatrics and discuss their implications for clinical care.
  • Discuss how to implement the latest recommendations and address the challenges associated with pediatric immunization.
  • Critically evaluate recent trends in diagnosis and management of neonatal health concerns.
  • Present clinical practice updates related to puberty, common office urologic problems, dermatology, ophthalmology, and care of the medically complex child.

The Summit Includes Additional Educational Symposiums:

The Annual Helen and Ronald Ross Symposium on Pediatric Cardiology
This parallel Thursday symposium will highlight essential factors of pediatric congenital heart disease and heart murmurs, including nonsurgical approaches to management, neurologic sequelae of heart lesions, and the role of genetic factors, along with discussions of clinical practice management of common problems such as syncope and palpitations, chest pain, and issues associated with sports clearance.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Summarize the diagnosis, prognosis, genetics, and management of congenital heart lesions in pediatric patients including nonsurgical, transcatheter approaches to management.
  • Describe the management of common issues in pediatric cardiology including chest pain, syncope, sports clearance issues, and pectus excavatum.

Nursing Symposium
As a parallel session on Thursday, this symposium will discuss the latest advances in the diagnosis and management of common pediatric chronic conditions including diabetes, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, and a host of cardiac and neonatal disorders. It will also define the role of nurse practitioners in instituting a comprehensive care program to provide timely, appropriate management of chronic conditions, transitional care, and coordinated care programs.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Discuss the latest advances affecting nurse practitioners in the diagnosis and management of common pediatric chronic conditions including diabetes, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, and cardiac and neonatal disorders.
  • Define the role of nurse practitioners in instituting a comprehensive care program to provide timely, appropriate management of chronic conditions, transitional care, and coordinated care programs.

Autism and ADHD Symposium
This Saturday afternoon symposium will review the latest screening and management options, including psychiatric and behavioral interventions for patients with autism. The ADHD track will cover how to combine pharmacotherapy and behavioral treatments to promote optimal outcomes.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Review state-of-the-art screening and management options including psychiatric and behavioral interventions for improving outcomes in patients with autism.
  • Discuss synergy of pharmacotherapy and behavioral treatments to promote optimal outcomes for ADHD in general pediatric practices.

Who Should Attend?

This activity is intended to educate physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, advanced practice nurses, physician assistants, and other allied health professionals in cardiology, pediatrics, family medicine, psychology, and psychiatry. Family members and patients living with autism and ADHD will also find the Saturday symposium to be informative and provide opportunities to clarify management and treatments regarding patient care.
