On Demand and Recorded Courses
BUILDING COVID-19 VACCINE CONFIDENCE FOR FLORIDA’S AUTISTIC COMMUNITY
Autism Speaks has created a free CME/CE opportunity “Building COVID-19 Vaccine Confidence for the Autistic Community in Florida” for Florida health care providers centered on COVID-19 vaccines for patients with autism and their families. Autistic individuals are nine-times more likely to be hospitalized from COVID-19 and six-times more likely to have longer hospitalization than non-autistic individuals. While the COVID-19 vaccines offer protection from hospitalization and death, the polarization of public opinion about the COVID-19 vaccines puts the autistic community at increased risk.
This presentation explores methods to improve vaccine counseling and discussion for autistic patients. The Florida AHEC Network designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Plans of Safe Care for Infants Exposed to Opioids
The purpose of this FREE course is to address gaps in training and educational resources with respect to 1) transitions of care from the hospital/birthing center to the pediatric medical home, 2) overcoming stigma and social attitudes, 3) health supervision in the pediatric medical home, and 4) recovery focused family‐centered care coordination. Additionally, the course will outline the central issues encountered during the transition period and which may represent barriers to accessing appropriate treatment and community resources for the mother, and early intervention programs for the infant.
