Documenting the Pediatric Visit
By: American Chiropractic Association

Course Description

Kids are more than just small adults and their chiropractic treatment needs to be tailored to their unique anatomy and physiology in order to provide safe and effective care. Each part of the patient visit requires special attention to the age and development of the patient. This Course will highlight some of the current research on the safety of pediatric chiropractic care and the unique aspects of conducting and documenting a pediatric patient visit, including a narrative history, physical exam, and daily SOAP notes. Learning Objectives: 1 Identify and explain the current research on the safety of chiropractic care in pediatrics. 2 Understand the unique aspects of the narrative history, physical exam, and SOAP note documentation for a pediatric patient. 3 Understand treatment plans for pediatric patients and how they differ from other patient treatment plans.
