Children with underlying medical conditions, to include neurological disorders, are at higher risk for influenza-associated complications. During the 2009-2010 Influenza A (H1N1) Pandemic, children with neurological disorders experienced a greater burden of morbidity and mortality. Influenza prevention and control strategies in this at-risk population should include coordinated care among clinicians and the children’s families. During this COCA call, subject matter experts will discuss subspecialist and primary care pediatrician collaborations regarding influenza prevention and control strategies for improving care for high-risk children.
At the conclusion of the session, the participant will be able to accomplish the following:
- Identify gaps and opportunities to improve influenza prevention and control for children and youth with special health care needs
- Describe which children are at highest/increased risk for influenza complications
- Discuss the importance of developing partnerships between medical subspecialists and primary care pediatricians to promote medical homes for children
- Identify specific strategies to enhance influenza prevention and control for children with neurologic and other chronic medical conditions
