The use of RT-CGM could be useful in improving overall glycemic management among this population. In addition, continuous glucose monitors can alarm if a patient's glucose is outside of target range which can allow more real-time glucose management and proactive treatment of hypoglycemia in an asymptomatic patient.

Li-Fraumeni Syndrome Education and Early Detection Clinic: Making a difference in quality of life and long-term survival through screening and education
Heather Meador APRN, CPNP, CPHON and Whitney Throckmorton MPAS, PA-C
At this time, 224 pediatric patients have been tested for TP53 mutations at MDACC, and 34 have tested positive for LFS. There are currently ~20 patients receiving care in the MDACC pediatrics LEAD clinic. Of those 18, five patients have received treatment for at least one malignancy. Once a patient turns 21, they transition to our adult LEAD clinic, as they focus on additional malignancies that affect the adult population.

- The implementation of IDS tool, which is integrated in the Epic, can assist providers in placing appropriate BBI insulin orders.
- Increased use of BBI use can result in reduction in hyperglycemia and hypoglycemia which can enhances overall patient safety and outcomes.
- Expanding or standardizing the intervention to other areas can help change prescriber practice and better glycemic control.
- Provider involvement and interest is an important factor in the utilization of the IDS tool.

PICC lines should be allowed in patients with cancer and CKD stage 3 and beyond as the risk of ESRD is significantly less than risk of progression of cancer or death.
Based on the results of the study, future research and practice need to evaluate current guidelines in appropriateness of PICCs among patients with cancer and CKD.

The Impact of a Checklist on Quality Patient Care and the Reduction of Clinic Visit Times in Pediatric Patients with Neurofibromatosis Type I
Racheal Pickney-Bingham DNP, CPNP-PC, CPON
CLs allowed for providers to document individualized patient information to readily identify each patients’- specific disease burden, diagnostic workup needed for further evaluation, and ongoing needed management. It will also serve as a personalized, educational tool for families and patients with NF1. This evidence-based CL is created with common clinical symptoms of patients with NF1 currently limited in the literature
