Event Details

Coming out of a year-long Oregon Pediatric Society learning collaborative, OPS has developed a two-part Pediatric Anxiety webinar series. ECHO Project leaders and OPS Members Sherri Alderman, MD, MPH, IME-E, FAAP, and Ken Carlson, MD, FAAP will lead the two interactive webinars. Anxiety 101 and 201 can be taken alone or together, according to participant interest and needs.
Anxiety 101 will provide skills in identifying upstream intervention to anxiety and recognizing anxiety across the pediatric lifespan. Learners will:
  • Understand the role of early relational health as an upstream intervention to anxiety
  • Review subtypes of anxiety
  • Discuss how anxiety presents in the pediatric lifespan from prenatal to teens
  • Identify appropriate anxiety screening tools
Anxiety 201 expands knowledge related to behavioral health interventions, screen time, complementary alternative care (CAM), and medications as they relate to anxiety. Learners will:
  • Introduce Behavioral Health interventions for use in primary care settings
  • Increase awareness of and knowledge about both evidence-based and non-evidence-based CAM treatments used for pediatric anxiety
  • Identify which patients might benefit from CAM treatment of their anxiety
  • Evaluate the relationship between screen time and anxiety
  • Review when to use prescription medications for anxiety
  • Review the most common medications and dosing
