Revealing Rett: Disease-Based Treatments to Improve Outcomes (CME/CE Webcast)

Activity Description and Purpose

In this educational activity, learners will become proficient at recognizing the subtle signs and symptoms of Rett syndrome (RTT) during the early stages of the disorder, along with the features that should prompt a referral in patients exhibiting potential signs of RTT. Guidelines for general practitioners who may treat patients with RTT and guidance on multidisciplinary management will be reviewed. In addition, clinical data on approved and emerging agents to treat this debilitating disorder will be discussed. The desired results of this activity are for general pediatricians and NPs and PAs in the pediatric care setting to improve their knowledge of RTT and emerging/new medications to enhance care of their patients with RTT.
