Conference Overview

The Donald W. Lewis Pediatric Update 2016 is a three-day accredited pediatric course that is designed to update the providers’ knowledge and skills by reviewing state-of-the-art diagnoses and treatments in general and sub-specialty pediatrics. We will provide a forum of informal learning that includes both didactic lecture and interactive work with your colleagues and experts. This year we’ve invited notable experts to explore the vaccine preventable disease horizon as well as teach the nuts and bolts required to be effective in the pediatric office of the future.

The State of Vaccines Now and in the Future

Friday, September 16, 2016

Vaccines have prevented 103.1 million cases of diphtheria, hepatitis A, measles, mumps, pertussis, polio and rubella since 1924, saving lives and significant medical costs. Virginia’s 2014 data shows that 72% of toddlers were correctly immunized. However, some states were at 92%. Find out how we can close this gap and improve our performance for children and adolescents in our community as we move into the future with grassroots QI and EMR.

Dr. Karen Remley, American Academy of Pediatrics CEO, will speak on recent events and their impact on pediatric medicine. 

Office of the Future: The Tools You Will Need

Saturday, September 17, 2016

Quality vs. Quantity - Where Medicare goes, Medicaid will follow. Quality metrics have become a major factor in the ever-changing world of medical insurance, and this new shift creates challenges for providers with a large population of Medicaid patients. As our colleagues in Internal Medicine and Family Practice deal with “at risk” payments from insurers on their quality metrics, we must recognize that this will soon be a reality in Pediatrics as well. Learn to speak the language of this new landscape and understand ACO, QI, PDSA, huddles and interdisciplinary teams. 

Sunday, September 18, 2016

Building Your Own QI Project - The final morning in Williamsburg will prepare you and your practice for the road ahead with the essential tools you will need to do real-time quality improvement in your practice while participating in planned MOC activities. 

Who Should Attend

This course is intended for pediatric physicians, primary care physicians, sub-specialty physicians, nurse practitioners, residents, fellows and other health care professionals.
