Provider Education: "Pertussis: Clinical Review and Colorado's Epidemic"
Robert Brayden, MD
Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine
Lisa Miller, MD, MSPH
State Epidemiologist, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment
Colorado is currently seeing the greatest number of pertussis cases in six decades, with more than 1,400 cases reported in the state as of December 2012. The last time Colorado saw pertussis numbers reach this level was in 1948.
Robert Brayden, MD, will offer a review of pertussis so providers can:
- Clinically identify an infant with pertussis.
- Understand the vaccine management necessary for a person recovering from pertussis.
- Describe common and uncommon adverse reactions to pertussis vaccination.
- Understand the relationship between "cocooning" and pertussis prevention.
As Manager of the Communicable Disease Epidemiology Program at CDPHE, Lisa Miller, MD, MSPH, will also be providing learners with information and data surrounding Colorado's own pertussis epidemic.
