2019 IPFDC Keynote Presentations
Pediatric Feeding Disorder: 2019 Update – James A. Phalen, MD, FAAP and Colleen Lukens, PhD
Pediatric feeding disorders lack a universally accepted definition. Our consensus paper proposes a unifying diagnostic term, “pediatric feeding disorder,” encompassing medical, nutrition, feeding skill, and psychosocial domains. By the conclusion of this session, attendees will be able to summarize the symptoms and proposed diagnostic criteria for PFD; list the four domains that underline PFD; and name key team players involved in optimal care of children who have PFD.
What is New in Motility Disorders? – Richard Noel, MD, PhD
Motility problems are highly prevalent and may present with many different symptoms, including vomiting, food refusal, and abdominal distension. This keynote included a discussion of advantages and limitations of different testing modalities for motility problems, with a focus on treatment strategies.
