The goal of this program is to improve the management of acute otitis media (AOM) and other infectious diseases in children. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to: 

1. Recognize presentations consistent with a diagnosis of AOM.

2. Prescribe the appropriate antibiotic for initial or delayed treatment and for failure of initial treatment for AOM. 

3. Counsel parents or caregivers on the appropriate duration of antibiotic therapy.

4. Recommend vaccines to reduce the frequency of episodes of AOM. 

5. Choose the appropriate antibiotic to treat acute bacterial rhinosinusitis.

The original programs were presented by Stephen C. Eppes, MD, Professor of Pediatrics, Jefferson Medical College, Thomas Jefferson University School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA, and Chief, Division of Infectious Diseases, Nemours/Alfred I. DuPont Hospital for Children, Wilmington, DE.
