National Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Education for Pediatricians

Childhood lead exposure and poisoning is a sustained public health concern that affects half a million children in the United States. Consequences associated with lead exposure include decreased impulse control, learning difficulties, and conduct disorders. Pediatricians are in a unique position to offer anticipatory guidance, identify and treat the condition, educate, and advocate for policies that protect children. This webinar will build awareness of and capacity for lead screening among pediatricians and pediatric and non‐physician clinicians. Specifically, this webinar will address: pediatric lead exposure as a present‐day public health concern, the importance of screening and testing, and community level approaches to decreasing pediatric lead exposure.

  1. Increased understanding of the importance of testing children for lead in the context of pediatric practice and that lead exposure is a priority public health concern.
  2. Increased confidence and understanding of their role as clinicians in detecting lead exposure in patients and blood lead level testing.
  3. Increased comprehension of the CDC’s Blood Level Reference Value and its utility.
  4. Increased testing for lead in pediatric or other medical practices.
