Introduction

We are delighted to announce the upcoming EXCEMED and Springer Healthcare IME IMAGE Symposium, focusing on the needs of paediatric endocrine nurses involved in the care and management of children with puberty disorders.

Overview

Update in paediatric thyroid disease, adherence to hormone therapy and transitional care of growth hormone deficiency

The aim of the symposium is to provide quality education, based on practical clinical experience, on all aspects of the nurse’s role related to the management of thyroid disease in children.

Learning objectives

At the end of the symposium, delegates will understand:

  • The physiology, endocrinology and clinical features of paediatric thyroid disorders
  • The role and experience of the paediatric endocrinology nurse specialist in the acute and chronic management of thyroid disorders
  • The presentations, diagnosis and optimal management of the child with hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism
  • The psychology and practical application of adherence management and useful tools for managing challenging interactions with patients and their families
  • The essential elements of transitional care and transfer of adolescent patients with GH deficiency and other chronic endocrine disorders from paediatric to adult care.

Accreditation details

An application for CME accreditation has been made to the International Council of Nurses (ICN)
