Self -Evaluation for this encounter.
This is 6 months’ year old Hispanic female. She is a well develop child for her age, and for this encounter is Well child exam for healthy children, according to The Bright Futures/American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) developed a set of comprehensive health guidelines for well-child care, known as the “periodicity schedule.” It is a schedule of screenings and assessments recommended at each well-child visit from infancy through adolescence. After I gathered the information in the interview for the mother and the physical examination I performed, I presented this well child case to my preceptor for discussion, who was agree with the proposed course of action. The mother was instructed the importance of this visit even if the child is normal because then us as a health care provider have the opportunity work together and tracking the growth and development of the child as well we can review together the child vaccination schedule besides if there is concern that could be arisen in topic of the development, behavior, sleep, eating, this visit gives us an opportunity to develop a team approach, regular visit develop strong and trustworthy relation between parent and health care provider.Mother is aware of the next appointment
