Educational Needs The educational needs are to advance the science and collaboration surrounding pediatric laser medicine; provide education in regards to the safe and effective clinical use of laser and energy devices as they relate to children’s health; and involve residents and trainees in pediatric laser education. These objectives will be accomplished through didactic lectures, an expert panel, and conversation with attendees.

Participants This focus workshop is open to all designated participants that may be interested in the use of laser and energy devices as they specifically relate to children’s health.

Background Requirements This focus workshop is open to all designated participants that may be interested in the use of laser and energy devices as they specifically relate to children’s health.

Instructional Content/Expected Learning Objectives Attendees of the workshop will develop a better understanding of options for pediatric procedural care. They will be better able to select appropriate laser and energy device therapies for specific pediatric problems, be better able to anticipate, prevent, and manage adverse events associated with pediatric laser treatments, and collaborate with patients and caregivers to develop treatment plans that meet the specific physical and emotional needs of children. Gaps in attendees’ knowledge and performance will be identified, and the information presented at the workshop will be used to help improve pediatric clinical outcomes by anticipating and reducing possible complications. The specific nature of this workshop provides unique opportunities for cross-fertilization of shared ideas by attendees that may help lead to clinical breakthroughs in the field of pediatric procedural care.
