October 2018 Cochrane Neonatal Webinar: Diagnostic Test Accuracy Reviews in Neonatal Medicine

Cochrane Neonatal Web Seminar
Supported by:

Diagnostic Test Accuracy Reviews in Neonatal Medicine
October 22, 2018
12:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time

The Cochrane Neonatal Review Group is pleased to announce the 22nd  in a series of sessions focused on specific Cochrane Reviews and the evidence that they provide for practice.
We will present a web seminar entitled: “Diagnostic Test Accuracy Reviews in Neonatal Medicine.”   The webinar will be held on October 22, 2018 at 12:00 Eastern Daylight Time.
The goal of this session is for participants to be able to identify the underlying principles of diagnostic test accuracy reviews in neonatal medicine and to demonstrate their understanding of DTA review findings. Participants will also be able to transfer their understanding of the findings of DTA reviews into clinical decision scenarios. We will be highlighting a review of “Molecular assays for the diagnosis of sepsis in neonates,” as an example DTA review.

Dr. Gautham Suresh and Dr. Mohan Pammi will be our guest discussants.
The webinar is available free to all neonatal physicians, practitioners, trainees, and nurses.

In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by The Robert Larner College of Medicine at The University of Vermont and Cochrane Neonatal.  The University of Vermont is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

The University of Vermont designates this live activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
This program has been reviewed and is acceptable for up to 1 Nursing Contact Hours.
We hope that this will be an exciting format for discussion of how these interventions can improve neonatal care.
