Webinar: Manage Children with Medical Complexity in Your Practice

Thursday, December 15; 1pm Central; Register Now*

Children with medical complexity have extensive needs for health services, experience functional limitations, and are high resource utilizers. Addressing the needs of this population to achieve high-value health care requires optimizing care in the medical home and community. Opportunities exist to develop strategies to enhance care delivery and decrease costs. The webinar, hosted by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Council on Children with Disabilities will describe the population of children with medical complexity and provides strategies on how pediatricians can optimize medical and health outcomes for their patients and their families. This discussion will be led by Drs Dennis Kuo and Amy Houtrow, co-authors of the new AAP clinical report: “Recognition and Management of Medical Complexity.”
