Using a variety of needs assessment tools, including surveys of target audience, Connecticut Children's Medical Center admissions data, state and local data, approved standards of care, licensing and certification criteria, and input from Connecticut Children's sub-specialists, the Office of Continuing Medical Education plans CME activities that enhance physician competence and performance, improve patient outcomes, and better equip physicians to practice in a changing healthcare environment.  Primary care pediatric practitioners are required, with increasing frequency, to diagnose and manage a variety of mental health issues.  The Andrulonis Child Mental Health Evening Lecture Series is structured to improve the skill sets required to meet this new challenge.

Target Audience
These activities are designed for pediatricians, family practitioners, psychiatrists, pediatric advanced-practice nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.  Child and adolescent psychologists, registered nurses, school nurses, and school social workers also may find the lectures valuable.
