Top Pediatric Prescriptions

Children between the ages of 1 and 12 years metabolize medications in a manner distinct from adults. As such, there are a number of anatomical and physiological factors that the nurse practitioner must take into account in order to safely prescribe and administer medications in the pediatric population.

“Top Pediatric Medications” will aid the nurse practitioner in making pediatric pharmacology decisions with increased confidence. The presentation begins with an overview of concepts pertinent to pediatric medications, including a discussion of factors unique to pediatric pharmacology and the top 20 drugs prescribed for children. It then defines common pediatric conditions and provides detailed information on the treatment plans and medications available for those conditions, including signs and symptoms that warrant specific regimens, age-specific dosage information, first-line choices and alternatives, resistance and recurrence issues, and more. This session also contains a detailed discussion of pediatric pain medications.

Use this session to boost your knowledge, and keep it in your archives as a reference tool for your practice. The pediatric treatment regimens for the following conditions are covered:

  • Ear infections
  • Asthma
  • Depression
  • Schizophrenia
  • Psychosis

Respiratory Pharmacology

Knowing a medication’s indication, mode of action, and adverse effects is critical in the practice of respiratory pharmacology. This session identifies the safest dosing methods for the most effective medications used in the prevention and treatment of COPD and other chronic respiratory conditions. Participation in this CE offering will help you to refine your understanding of the most recent Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease guidelines when treating patients with COPD.

Asthma and allergic rhinitis are included in this presentation and explored through their distinct etiologies to further your critical thinking skills when developing effective care plans for your patients. The classification of asthma severity is presented and positioned along with stepwise approach guidelines, giving you the most comprehensive resource in the management of patients with asthma.


Drugs for Bacterial Infections

Antibacterial agents are powerful tools, and it is important to use them with precision. This advanced session provides an in-depth discussion of the most appropriate drugs to prescribe for bacterial infections, allowing you to confidently navigate this complex area of pharmacology. The talk begins with a discussion of bacterial pathogenicity and virulence, and the science behind anti-infectious agents is reviewed. Next, the session delves into detailed discussion of specific antibiotic drugs.

This CE offering includes information on the following topics:

  • Natural penicillins, anti-Staphylococcal, anti-Pseudomonal, and aminopenicillins
  • First- through fifth-generation cephalosporins
  • Antibiotic treatment and prophylaxis for tuberculosis
