The Andrulonis Child Mental Health Evening Lecture Series

This lecture series is supported by the Dr. Paul A. “Tony” Andrulonis Memorial Fund for Child and Adolescent Mental Health. We are pleased to be able to present this lecture series as part of Tony’s legacy – a reminder of his dedication to excellence and education in child psychiatry and mental health.

Needs Assessment

Using a variety of needs assessment tools, including: surveys of the target audience, Connecticut Children’s admissions data, state and local data, approved standards of care, licensing and certification criteria, and input from Connecticut Children’s Medical Center sub-specialists, the Office of Continuing Medical Education plans evidence-based CME activities that enhance the competence and performance of health care providers, improve patient outcomes, and better equip physicians to practice in a changing healthcare environment.

With increasing frequency, primary care pediatric practitioners are required 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 challenge.

Target Audience

This activity is 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 information valuable.
