Did you know juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) impacts nearly 300,000 children in the US? Earn MOC and learn how to address JIA with our journal club!

Did you know that juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) impacts nearly 300,000 children in the US – with trends suggesting that the prevalence of this disorder is increasing? Due to a shortage of specialists, the primary care provider plays an important role in the management of pediatric JIA. To help better understand this role, the Ohio Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics has developed a 4-part educational webinar series. This series will help prepare providers in any setter to better identify and address patients with juvenile arthritis.

Additionally, Ohio AAP has created 4 handouts – two for primary care providers, one for patients/caregivers, and one for rheumatologists. Each handouts use consistent messaging on pJIA symptoms and co-management but are varied depending on the audience.

Please click here to access the recorded webinars and handouts.
