Diagnostic accuracy in pediatric primary care
Successful patient care depends on carefully reaching the correct diagnosis and cause (or causes).
The treatment plan then follows and makes sense.
I've created a symptom checker app for self-triage and self-care of sick children. The goal is to help parents prevent unnecessary ER visits. Over 30 Children's Hospitals have adapted it for their communities. Over 400 pediatricians have added it to their practice websites.
I give parent conferences on toilet training problems and sleep problems of childhood. I also speak to high school students about a career in pediatric medical writing.
