Description

The 2017 California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative (CPQCC) workshop titled "CPQCC at Cool Topics in Neonatology" will focus on standardizing practice and care and healthcare services delivery. Small baby outcomes in the State of California and the nation will be explored. In addition, speakers will address standardizing practice and care in the NICU and the healthcare services delivery spectrum will be presented and discussed.

At the conclusion of the program, participants should be able to:
  • Identify current trends with small baby outcomes in the State of California
  • Describe the benefit of standardizing practice related to delayed cord clamping and approaches to care for the NICU patient
  • Describe the impact of culture of safety in the obstetric and neonatal population
  • Describe teleneonatology and the impact on healthcare services delivery in the NICU

Target Audience

The California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative (CPQCC) workshop is geared toward multidisciplinary teams of caregivers from neonatal units that include: neonatologists, pediatricians, neonatal nurse practitioners, registered nurses, with ancillary staff, as well as hospital risk management and quality improvement specialists who can implement change in the management of the topics presented.

Neonatology Point-of-Care Ultrasound (POCUS) Workshop - (Non-CME Workshop)

Sunday, March 5, 2017: 12:30-5:00 pm
Chair: Jae Kim, MD, PhD, UC San Diego Jacobs Medical Center & Rady Children's Hospital

We have assembled a didactic/hands-on workshop on the increasing use of neonatology operated bedside ultrasound. The workshop is aimed at increasing the adoption of these emerging practices in neonatology and facilitate the foundational basis for new and intermediate learners to acquire or improve their ultrasound skills. We will start with a working lunch introduction with box lunches provided after the main CAN session has completed. We will provide didactic lectures that include basics of ultrasound, cardiac views, non-cardiac views, and clinical applications/scenarios. The second half of the workshop will offer close learning at several teaching stations that will cover cardiac, non-cardiac and clinical applications. An ample number of instructors and live models will be present to provide a solid practical experience for participants.

REGISTRATION FOR THIS WORKSHOP IS SEPARATE FROM THE COOL TOPICS IN NEONATAL MEETING

Registration for the workshop is only accepted online at http://www.cme.ucla.edu click on Cool Topics in Neonatology; then click on the workshop button. The fee is $150 (includes box lunch) and there is no refund.

Space is limited to 50 participants and applications will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis.

Attendees who register and pay will receive a separate confirmation for the workshop which will guarantee entrance. Open to Cool Topics attendees only.
  • Fee: $150
  • Fellows $75

Objectives

At the conclusion of the program, participants should be able to:

  • Identify current trends with small baby outcomes in the State of California
  • Describe the benefit of standardizing practice related to delayed cord clamping and approaches to care for the NICU patient
  • Describe the impact of culture of safety in the obstetric and neonatal population
  • Describe teleneonatology and the impact on healthcare services delivery in the NICU

Accreditation

The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA designates this live activity for a maximum of 12 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits TM. Physicians should claim only credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Disclosures

The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies commercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is "truly independent" and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that nonpromotional, commercially supported education be objective, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program's participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy now mandates that the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.
