CE: The Child in Room 302: Addressing Inpatient Needs for Children with ASD
Anyone can learn with PNCB’s new bite-sized Journal Club CE—article included!
A shift has begun with the child in Room 302, a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). We all know that children with ASD have the same medical needs as children without developmental or behavioral disabilities and may at times require hospitalization for comorbid medical conditions. But is the hospital ready to provide optimal in-patient care for this child? Learn from a case-based article about gaps in care and how it takes a family-centered, team-based approach to care for the whole child. Also included is a list of resources for pediatric healthcare professionals who provide care for children with ASD.
Explain why hospitalization is inordinately challenging for children with ASD and other behavioral disorders.
Discuss how quality of care for children with behavioral disorders can be improved through education/training, multidisciplinary input to include partnerships with caregivers, and expanded inpatient psychiatric resources.
