New Online Course on Infantile Spasms

Posted on:

New Online Course from American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) - Infantile Spasms: Early Recognition and Treatment

This online course is designed to help health care providers recognize and identify the typical signs and symptoms of infantile spasms (IS) and will review the most effective IS therapies. You’ll learn to:

  • Identify the typical signs and symptoms of IS in infants
  • Recognize the various causes of IS
  • Recognize that IS can occur in both infants who are developing typically, as well as infants with developmental delay
  • Describe how early treatment of IS improves cognitive and developmental outcomes
  • Select effective therapies for IS, using evidence-based medicine and American Academy of Neurology (AAN) practice guidelines

Course was developed by the AAP and ACEP, with practice guidelines from AAN – both members of Infantile Spasms Action Network (ISAN) — comprising national and international entities, convened by CNF, dedicated to raising awareness for IS.

The course includes the STOP IS mnemonic, developed by ISAN.

Register today through ISAN site: www.childneurologyfoundation.org/infantilespasms or AAP site.
MOC/CME available. $29 for non-AAP members.
