Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC)
Recorded on November 5, 2019

Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC) is the sudden and unexpected death of a child over the age of 1 that remains unexplained after a thorough death investigation. It is the fifth leading category of death in children ages 1-4; yet there is limited medical awareness of it, leaving medical professionals inadequately prepared to meet the needs of families affected by these tragedies. The goal of this talk is to address this gap in our medical education.


  • To define SUDC and differentiate from SUID/SIDS
  • To review the current statistics of SUDC and summarize the current research
  • To explain the role of the SUDC Foundation
  • To discuss how pediatricians can support families after the sudden and unexpected death of a child

All Aboard! Your Ticket to CT WiZ 
Wednesday, April 24th, 2019
The Connecticut Department of Public Health (DPH) is actively onboarding providers interested in establishing an electronic health record (EHR) HL7 interface with CT WiZ, Connecticut's new Immunization Information System (IIS). CT WiZ provides a centralized repository for immunization records and clinical decision support, while also providing tools and resources for ordering vaccines, managing inventory, and assessing clinic coverage levels. This webinar will describe the typical process for establishing an electronic connection between the EHR and CT WiZ. As the primary stakeholder in the onboarding process, providers have important roles and responsibilities at each stage of the process, including the periods before and after active onboarding.
Ultimately, providers can contribute to and leverage data in the IIS through a variety of methods: by directly logging into the user interface, electronic reporting to the IIS, and bi-directional query and response between the EHR and IIS. This webinar will also describe the training plan and support strategies that will be used for all users of CT WiZ, whether you have an EHR or not.Login
