Needs Statement

Developmental-behavioral conditions are common, affecting 15% of children in the USA. The prevalence and complexity of these conditions are increasing despite long wait times and a limited pipeline of new providers. The recent AAP report on the DBP workforce recognized the growing challenge facing the US health system in providing care for these children and families.  The viability of the DBP subspecialty requires strategies to maintain and expand the workforce, improve clinical efficiency, and prevent burnout.

 

Objectives

Through lectures and question and answer sessions, participants at the conclusion of this conference will be able to:

  • Describe the latest clinical information on developmental and behavioral issues in children and families
  • Identify such problems in their practice and work settings
  • Choose and provide appropriate treatment for such issues

 

Target Audience

Primary care physicians, pediatricians, pediatric nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, social workers, child mental health professionals and family nurse practitioners.
