Safe Table Forum

CHPSO Safe Table Forum – It Could have been Different

May 22, 2024 | 11:00AM - 12:00PM PT

This session will explore Gabby’s journey as she sought medical help for failure to thrive. Gabby’s mother will share their experiences with multiple doctor visits, a pediatric Gastroenterology (GI) specialist will discuss the failure to thrive workup, and an emergency department (ED) and trauma specialist will address the ultimate diagnosis and strategies for supporting patients like Gabby. Ultimately, Gabby was admitted to the hospital where her diagnosis was determined, marking the beginning of a new chapter in her life.

Presentation topics include:

  • Identify specific indicators of bruises in children under 4 years old that may suggest inflicted injury, utilizing the TEN4-FACESp framework.
  • Demonstrate proficiency in utilizing an application designed to guide treatment decisions based on evidence-based medicine (EBM) principles.
  • Apply knowledge gained from the session to effectively assess bruises in young children and determine appropriate courses of action for further evaluation and management.
  • Enhance clinical decision-making skills through the integration of TEN4-FACESp guidelines and technology-driven tools into pediatric practice.
  • Develop a comprehensive understanding of evidence-based approaches to recognizing and responding to concerning bruises in pediatric patients, fostering improved patient outcomes and safety.
