As pediatricians in South Florida continue to care for the children with confirmed cases of Congenital Zika Syndrome and those who were exposed to the Zika virus in utero, additional education is needed regarding the known effects of the Zika virus on infants and children as well as the recommended screenings to be performed as the child develops.  

To effectively expand upon the work completed through this project over the past couple years, FCAAP will host a FREE one‐day accredited educational conference for pediatric healthcare providers. Sessions will be led by South Florida area experts with experience caring for Zika exposed and infected children. Topics will include:

Serology, PCR Testing, and Interpretation – Dr. Samita Andreansky
How to Screen for Zika‐Related Audiological Defects – Dr. Robert Fifer
How to Screen for Zika‐Related Neurodevelopmental Defects – Dr. Roberto Lopez-Alberola
Local Radiological Research Findings Related to Zika‐Infected Children – Dr. Gaurav Saigal
Local Nephrological Research Findings Related to Zika‐Infected Children – Dr. Chryso Katsoufis
Local Cardiological Research Findings Related to Zika‐Infected Children – Dr. Juanita Hunter
End Organ Damage Correlation to Zika Exposure – Dr. Ivan Gonzalez

CME, CEU, and MOC Part 2 credits will be available. Registration is now open! See the full conference agenda here. For more information, please contact Cheval Breggins at cbreggins@fcaap.org.

Reducing Complications of Therapeutic Blood Transfusion in Sickle Cell Disease 
Online Course

The Georgia REdHHoTT project, with support from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has launched a free, web-based continuing education series to increase awareness of and adherence to evidence-based transfusion practices in sickle cell disease (SCD). Blood transfusion is an established therapy for treating and preventing certain SCD-related complications. The goal of this course is to increase the use of evidence-based practices among primary and emergency health care providers, thereby reducing the rates of transfusion-related complications in these patients.

The course builds on current recommendations and addresses additional aspects of quality, effective SCD management. The introductory module covers general considerations for transfusion in SCD and the genetic and biological foundations of the most common transfusion complications. The remaining modules are case-based scenarios addressing specific areas of concern, including use of blood transfusion during acute illness, delayed hemolytic transfusion reactions, and management of chronic transfusion.

The four modules can be taken independently and have no prerequisites. Continuing education credit is being jointly provided by the CDC, Georgia State University, and Emory University School of Medicine.

For more information about the credits, contact Mary Hulihan, Dr.P.H., mhulihan@cdc.gov.

Development of this course was supported by Cooperative Agreement DD14-1406, funded by the CDC. Its contents are solely the responsibility of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of the CDC or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
