    Simulation Sessions: Simulation at a Distance for Remote and Resource-Limited Settings  

    Simulation Sessions: Simulation at a Distance for Remote and Resource-Limited Settings  

    The power of simulation is in the hands-on nature so often it is assumed that simulation must happen in-person. Simulation at a distance has been around for several decades as a method that connects educators and learners across space and time. The pandemic rapidly accelerated the use and development of this modality and led to many innovative simulations in the last few years. Join us as Dr. Sanseau, a Pediatric Emergency Physician from CHOP, shares some of the ways she has used this modality and how others can take advantage of its flexibility in their own settings.

    What's Weight Got To Do With It? Promoting Kids Health At Every Size

    What's Weight Got To Do With It? Promoting Kids Health At Every Size

    You can’t turn on the radio or television, or even walk into most exam rooms these days without thinking about weight, and specifically the rising numbers of our patients who are designated as overweight or obese. But what does this mean for health? Conventional medical teaching is that being overweight is correlated with worse health outcomes. But….what if that's wrong? What if there is a weight neutral approach to health that doesn’t focus exclusively on a patient’s BMI? Here to talk to us about weight-neutral health care is Ragen Chastain, speaker, writer, weight science expert and ACE certified health coach and functional fitness specialist.

    Bringing home baby: Safely Reuniting NICU Babies and Their Families Sooner Using An Innovative Home Monitoring Program

    Bringing home baby: Safely Reuniting NICU Babies and Their Families Sooner Using An Innovative Home Monitoring Program

    Preterm birth affects approximately 1 of every 10 infants born in the United States, and almost all of those infants will end up spending time in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit or NICU. For many, this involves several days of infants receiving care in a hospital, with parents unable to take their babies home, disrupting their family and work life. Often the first question families ask their NICU care teams is, “When can I go home?” Recently, Children’s Minnesota launched the Children’s Home Application-based Monitoring Program, which is a one of it’s kind program in Minnesota that allows infants that qualify to receive expert care and monitoring by the baby’s neonatal care time at home, with overwhelmingly positive results. Here to discuss that program is Dr. Cristina Miller, one of our kid experts in neonatology and the medical director of the NICU follow up program.

    Putting Kids First: Investing In Pediatric Mental Health Care

    Putting Kids First: Investing In Pediatric Mental Health Care

    It’s no secret that we are facing a mental health crisis among our pediatric patients. Kids and teenagers have higher rates of depression and anxiety than ever before, and suicide has now become the second leading cause of death for adolescents. More and more of our patients and families are seeking mental health care support and services, and we have an unfortunate shortage of pediatric and adolescent mental health specialists to fill the need. This has resulted in kids showing up in clinics and emergency departments in crisis, and sometimes spending days to weeks sitting in a hospital awaiting specialized inpatient mental health care. There appears to be no easy fix for this issue, but here to talk to us today about the landscape of pediatric and adolescent mental health care and some steps that Children’s Minnesota is taking to help with gaps in care is Jamie Winter RN, MBA, director of mental health services.

    What's Sleep Got To Do With It?

    We learn more and more every day about the impact that sleep has on both our physical and mental health. Despite this, many adults are chronically sleep deprived and many kids and teenagers also don't get enough sleep. On today's Talking Pediatrics, our Kid Expert from the Sleep Clinic, Dr. Ben Ryba-White, joins us to talk about the importance of sleep, the mysteries of melatonin and what we can be doing in the primary care office to help improve the sleep habits of our young patients.
