New FREE Continuing Education from MMWR and Medscape

Vital Signs: Zika-Associated Birth Defects and Neurodevelopmental Abnormalities Possibly Associated With Congenital Zika Virus Infection — US Territories and Freely Associated States, 2018

CDC’s MMWR and Medscape are proud to introduce a new FREE continuing education (CE) activity. Clinicians will become aware of the frequency and type of birth defects and neurodevelopmental abnormalities seen among children born to mothers with laboratory evidence of possible Zika virus infection.

This activity is intended for obstetricians/ gynecologists, infectious disease clinicians, neurologists, nurses, pediatricians, psychiatrists, public health officials, and other clinicians caring for children born to mothers exposed to Zika virus during pregnancy.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the frequency of Zika-associated birth defects and/or neurodevelopmental abnormalities possibly associated with congenital Zika virus infection in infants born to mothers with laboratory evidence of possible Zika virus infection reported to the US Zika Pregnancy and Infant Registry (USZPIR)
  2. Explain clinical and public health implications of these findings from USZPIR regarding Zika-associated birth defects and/or neurodevelopmental abnormalities in infants born to mothers with laboratory evidence of possible Zika virus infection
  3. Determine potential limitations of these findings from USZPIR regarding Zika-associated birth defects and/or neurodevelopmental abnormalities in infants born to mothers with laboratory evidence of possible Zika virus infection
