Well Child Visit

  • Conduct an age-appropriate well child visit that includes physical exam, assessment of growth, nutrition, development, and education regarding injury prevention and safety risks.
  • Address parental concerns, social context, and safety, and provide relevant anticipatory guidance (e.g. dental caries, family adjustment and sleeping position).
  • Know the current childhood immunization schedule, be able to assess vaccination status of a child, and counsel parents on the risks and benefits of vaccinations.
  • Use an evidence-based tool to help guide a well child visit, e.g. Rourke Baby Record, Greig Health Record.
  • Identify common presenting concerns in newborns and children (e.g. jaundice, murmurs, autism), identify patients who require further assessment and perform the initial steps in management of these common presenting conditions.
  • Inform caregivers of appropriate routine follow up intervals.
