The rate of lead poisoning for children in Illinois is among the highest in the nation. As part of its plan to address this, the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) recently adopted new rules that lowered the level at which public health interventions are initiated for children with elevated levels of lead in their blood. Are you up to date on the latest recommendations for medical management of patients with elevated blood lead levels? Are you ready to comply with IDPH regulations?
Helen Binns, M.D., MPH, is an IDPH Lead Program contracted physician. In this webinar, Dr. Binns will share her extensive knowledge of Illinois Lead Program Requirements and medical management for women and children with elevated blood levels. She will address issues that can occur at all stages, from before conception through childhood, and offer tools for prevention of lead-related illness.
At the conclusion of this learning activity, participants will be able to:
- List sources of lead and describe the effect of lead.
- Describe Illinois requirements and recommendations for prenatal, pregnancy, and childhood lead evaluation and testing.
- Describe Illinois recommendations for breastfeeding mothers with elevated blood lead levels.
- List Illinois blood lead result reporting requirements.
- Discuss medical management for children and pregnant women with elevated blood lead results.
