Pediatrics: Join Dr. Alejandro Hoberman, Chief of General Academic Pediatrics at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, a national expert on ear infections, for an interactive discussion on diagnosis of middle ear infections, also known as acute otitis media (AOM). This is the pediatric illness for which antibiotics are most often prescribed, and one that three out of four children will experience by age 3 years.

Dr. Hoberman's presentation is titled "Diagnosis and Treatment of Acute Otitis Media: Can We Agree?" His dynamic presentation will involve active participation by audience members and include discussion on proper diagnosis and treatment.

Dr. Hoberman is at the forefront nationally and internationally in efforts to improve the diagnosis and treatment of AOM. His research contributions have included various randomized clinical trials evaluating diagnosis, management and prevention of AOM.

He has developed multimedia educational programs aimed at improving diagnostic accuracy in children with AOM. Together with Phillip Kaleida, MD, another Children's pediatrician, Dr. Hoberman developed a program, ePROM (enhancing PRoficiency in Otitis Media, supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) to help train medical students, residents and practitioners across the country in the diagnosis of AOM.

Dr. Hoberman also will discuss some of the prevention and management clinical trials conducted at Children's in children with AOM, and present a study – soon to be initiated and funded by the National Institutes of Health – that will evaluate the efficacy of antimicrobials in young children with this frequently occurring condition.

Register now for this Continuing Medical Education (CME) event. Physicians may also attend this event in person at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh, 3705 Fifth Ave., Pittsburgh, Pa.
