"Child Sexual Abuse - What Pediatric Providers Should Know" Wednesday, Dec. 2 - 6 PM
Leanna Dugan and Hollye Gallion, pediatric nurse practitioners (PNPs) and medical providers at Our Kids - which provides medical evaluations and crisis counseling in response to concerns of child sexual abuse - will be leading a webinar presentation on Wednesday, Dec. 2 at 6 PM discussing the current landscape of child sexual abuse, providing updates on what to watch for and how to counsel families during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Update from Dr. Morgan McDonald, Deputy Commissioner for Population Health, TN Dept of Health:
HHS has begun supplying the state with BinaxNOW COVID-19 rapid POC antigen tests. Since one of the priority groups for testing is school-aged children, TDH is making available up to 250 BinaxNOW tests per practice to pediatricians now. Practices must meet the following requirements:
Provider must be a CLIA Waived facility or apply for a CLIA Waiver if not already CLIA Waived
Use the COVID-19 Rapid Test per manufacturer's instructions
Report all test results to TDH (Report link: HERE)
The Pediatric Management Institute (PMI) has been hosting a regular webinar series on the "Business Impact of COVID-19 on Pediatric Practices." PMI also has an active online forum for discussion among providers for how to deal with issues.
