The foundation of pediatric healthcare visits, both sick and well, starts with a thorough health history; from the data collected, an accurate physical examination and diagnosis can be made. Primary care healthcare visits are an integral part of ensuring the health and well-being of the child. In children that participate in sports, a preparticipation physical examination (PPE) is required and may be the only contact the healthy child has with their healthcare provider.
Shelby is a 5-year-old female, brought to the clinic by her parents and will be starting kindergarten in the fall. The parents state that she needs her physical and shot record to register her for school. The parents state that she has been healthy and voice no concerns although Shelby is “scared” about the exam and vaccines.
How would you address Shelby’s fear of the exam and vaccines?
What age-appropriate screenings and lab tests are recommended for Shelby? What immunizations will Shelby require, if any?
