In our clinical lives we are faced with the task of seeing more patients in much less time. How do we manage? By spending less time on each patient and yet ensuring a precise physical assessment in the process.
“8 in 10 misdiagnoses were due, in part, to problems in the patient encounter, such as errors during the physical exam or medical history-taking.” -American Medical Association
We cannot afford to miss any clues during the precious window of time that we have with each patient. That’s why, now more than ever - we must incorporate proper physical assessment skills and listening techniques into our daily practice. Attend this seminar and you will improve your confidence, increase efficiency, and eliminate errors. We guarantee this lecture will give you the tools you need, resulting in peace of mind that no errors were made at the end of each busy day - together we will change your practice.
