Description

As we see pediatric patients in practice, it is imperative that we identify and treat the CAUSE, which will hopefully take care of the SYMPTOM, making appropriate use of the best evidence to guide practice decisions.

And it isn’t just the pediatric patient’s presentation. Parents can be at their whit’s end when you see them…concerned, frustrated or perhaps already ready to form their own diagnostic conclusion.

Join Stephen Jones, MS, RN, PNP, ET, to recognize, prevent and manage common childhood conditions. When you know the latest evidence based recommendations, you will have the clarity to incorporate necessary assessments to dictate the treatment plan.
