 Statement of Need: With advances in Pediatric Emergency Medicine that are continually evolving and clinical practices constantly changing, gaps still exist in diagnosis and treatment of patients in the Pediatric Emergency Department. Physicians, residents, nurses, NPs and physician assistants need to be educated on emerging techniques, treatment modalities, best practices and current medicine protocols for optimal pediatric care, especially in acute situations. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to regularly update clinicians on the most current, cutting-edge strategies in treating these pediatric patients. Lectures, case presentations and evidence-based literature review will focus on decision-making during a pediatric emergency. Lastly, a series of rapid-fire presentations, designed to provide actionable information quickly, will keep learners engaged and attentive. Program Objectives: All Northwell Health CME activities are designed to improve patient care, safety and outcomes. At the conclusion of this conference, participants should be able to:

APPLY current and emerging therapies that can improve outcomes for pediatric patients treated in the Pediatric ED.
REVIEW current evidence-based literature and review of topics related to opioids, pre-hospital care, gun violence, and critical intubations .
DEVELOP and apply strategies of recently updated guidelines to manage and care for pediatric patients with acute medical pathologies.
EXAMINE and identify treatment and management strategies that the PEM providers can apply to the care of pediatric patients
