LIVE WEBINARS ON GROWTH DISORDERS: Recognition and Diagnosis
This series of four webinars will cover all aspects of diagnosis and treatment of the major short stature disorders. The definition and diagnosis of short stature will be described, together with the most common syndromes that have growth deficiency as one of their symptoms, and notably those which are approved by the FDA or EMA for treatment with recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH). rhGH therapy will be described in detail from its aims and objectives, initiation of therapy, dosage and monitoring to the responses in the most common disorders. Therapeutic outcome will be described. Many children (and adults) can be on rhGH therapy for extended periods of time, raising the issue of safety. This will be discussed, as will adherence to treatment, and the use of rhGH into adulthood, particularly in patients with severe GH deficiency and Prader-Willi syndrome.
This activity is designed for pediatricians, pediatric endocrinologists and general practitioners from the Asia Pacific Region.
