Failure to Thrive: Why and so what? (Webinar)

Event Dates
A child abuse pediatrician will provide an overview of the definition of failure to thrive (FTT) in infants and young children with case examples.

The differentiation between FTT being caused by medical problems vs. caregiver neglect will be reviewed.

Case information that would be needed to determine if the child's FTT was primarily the result of the caregiver's actions vs other barriers to the child receiving needed care will be presented with case examples.
