Neonatal and Pediatric EBM Resource

Nemours Children’s Health System has launched a neonatal and pediatric COVID-19 evidence based literature online resource. The freely available evidence based articles and guidance have been selected by our Nemours faculty and medical librarians for clinicians. This database is updated bi-weekly and all articles are available in full text. CME credit can be claimed for your search by clicking on the CLAIM CME CREDIT link at the top right side of the website, which can be accessed here.


Avoid Frustration, Register Now!

​Have you registered for Hot Topics yet?  Please avoid the frustration that a late registration could entail, and plan to register by November 30th if you have not already.  Since Hot Topics is virtual this year, each participant requires individual programming for access in the virtual platform.  If you wait to register until the week of the conference, we may not be able to get you programmed into the system in time to watch the sessions on Sunday live. 

We very much appreciate the overwhelming support for and interest in Hot Topics 2020.  Despite this very strange year, we have already surpassed last year's registration numbers.

Hot Topics Moves to Virtual Event December 6-10, 2020

We hope that this virtual format, featuring the high quality faculty for which Hot Topics is known, will allow us to expand our reach, especially among clinicians who may not have been able to travel to Hot Topics in previous years.  The program will be recorded in its entirety and available for viewing for 30 days after the event for those with conflicting schedules or in different time zones.  You may also claim credit for watching the recorded program.  Questions can be directed to info@hottopics.org
