The Abby Stoddard Lectureship and Visiting Professorship at Children's Hospital Colorado provides faculty physicians, residents, fellows, nurses and other healthcare providers from Children's Hospital and throughout the Rocky Mountain Region healthcare community an opportunity to observe and discuss the latest clinical cases in pediatric neurology, neuroradiology, childhood stroke, hematology, pediatric neuro-intensive care, and rehabilitation. 

*Further registration instructions can be found in the "Take Course" tab. 

 

Target Audience

The target audience for this activity includes physicians, fellows, residents, students, mid-level providers and nurses who have an interest in pediatric neurology. 

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this conference, participants should be able to: 

  • List common causes of cerebrovascular disorders in infants and children who present with ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes and understand the current options for hyperacute endovascular therapy for acute stroke, as well as emerging rehabilitation strategies for survivors. 
  • Identify the primary and secondary mechanisms that underlie ischemic brain injury and stroke in children treated with ECMO. 
  • Define some of the new EEG and neuroradiological techniques used for children with critical neurological disorders and brain injuries.
  • Review current therapeutic approaches for focal cerebral arteriopathies in childhood. 
  • Define how socioeconomic determinants affect the outcome of children with arterial ischemic stroke and describe how chronic neurological illness can affect the short-term and long-term economic well-being as well as the emotional well-being of the patient, the parents, and the extended family.
