Pediatrics Updates 2022
The families of your patients have a lot of questions about your diagnoses, and there is a lot to uncover. How does depression present in children? Why do teenagers go to bed late and sleep in? Should you let kids cry it out at night? And more.
For example, more and more, pediatricians are treating ADHD in their young patients. 5.1 million children (4-17 in age) had a current diagnosis of ADHD in 2021 (CHADD). And yet, every year, there’s still more to learn about the diagnosis: What's the difference between FDA approval age and the age of recommended use for ADHD medications?
