Johnson Center for Pregnancy and Newborn Services Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford Palo Alto, California Faculty This is the nineteenth annual conference presented by the Cali- fornia Association of Neonatologists (CAN) and the AAP District IX Section on Perinatal Pediatrics. The meeting will include an optional workshop to help participants utilize CPQCC resources to improve perinatal outcomes. The conference and combined meeting will be dedicated to a scientific and practice-oriented discussion of current topics and controversies in perinatal and neonatal medicine. The optional California Perinatal Quality Care Collaborative (CPQCC) workshop is geared to teams of caregivers from perinatal and neonatal units (neonatologists, obstetricians, neonatal nurse practitioners, infection control nurses, nutrition- ists, lactation consultants, respiratory therapists) who can effect change in the topics presented. The optional Friday afternoon Neonatal CPT Coding Update Seminar is for neonatologists, neonatal nurse practitioners and neonatal billing personnel. The tenth annual workshop, “Life After Fellowship: Exploring Career Opportunities and Practical Considerations for New Neonatologists,” will be offered on Friday. The workshop is geared for neonatology fellows and new neonatologists recently out of training. Participation is by invitation. The Saturday and Sunday education program is directed to neo- natologists, pediatricians, NNPs, and will provide an update on topics pertinent to current practice. At the conclusion of the program participants should be able to: • Recognize the evidence basis of current neonatal practices • Describe current coding practices • Review the present status of CPQCC and PQIP projects
  • 3. Accreditation The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, is accredited by the Accredita- tion Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The Office of Continuing Medical Education, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA designates this live activity for a maximum of 12 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Physi- cians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. The California State Board of Registered Nursing accepts courses approved by the AMA for Category 1 credit as meet- ing the continuing education requirements for license renew- al. Nurses from states other than California should inquire with their local state board for specific continuing education policies. Disclosure The FDA has issued a concept paper which classifies com- mercial support of scientific and educational programs as promotional unless it can be affirmed that the program is “truly independent” and free of commercial influence. In addition to independence, the FDA requires that non- promotional, commercially supported education be objec- tive, balanced, and scientifically rigorous. The policy further states that all potential conflicts of interest of the CME staff and faculty be fully disclosed to the program’s participants. In addition, Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education policy now mandates that the provider adequately manages all identified potential conflicts of interest prior to the program. We at UCLA fully endorse the letter and spirit of these concepts.

Topics to be presented include: • Review of the CPQCC database to identify opportuni- ties for LOS improvement in California NICUs • Review of approaches to utilization management in California NICUs • The impact of specific high risk clinical events on NICU LOS (e.g., neonatal abstinence, feeding issues and apnea management) and • Description of effective approaches to critical parent education to support a smooth transition out of the NICU (panel with parent participation) OBJECTIVES Following the lectures, discussions, and group activities, participants will be able to: 1. Describe potentially better practices surrounding length of stay for neonatal patients. 2. Identify barriers to patient discharge in your NICU. 3. Identify strategies to overcome these barriers.
