A Continuing Education Conference for Pediatricians and Pediatric Nurse Practitioners

Thursday, May 19, 2005

Shipley Auditorium
Newton Wellesley Hospital

Course Description

Psychiatric problems in children and adolescents are an increasing problem. Given the current shortage of child and adolescent psychiatrists in the United States, pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners are being called upon to diagnose and treat these disorders. The aim of this conference is to present an update on depression and the SSRI controversy and an update on screening tools. This series is designed exclusively for pediatricians and pediatric nurse practitioners. Learning will occur in a variety of formats, including didactic presentations, question and answer sessions, and case presentations.
