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. Join Jennifer Brocker, DC, DICCP, president of the ACA Council on Chiropractic Pediatrics, as she highlights 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 subjective-objective-assessment-and-plan (SOAP) notes. After viewing this webinar, registrants will be able to identify and explain the current research on the safety of chiropractic care in pediatrics, describe the unique aspects of the narrative history, physical exam, and SOAP note documentation for a pediatric patient, and more.
