What I learnt this week: Giving those who need the most the least #WILTW

Spotting the ‘sick’ child is, by and large, a relatively simple task. My training involved developing a visual library of well and unwell children which I needed to burn into my cerebral cortex. Now as an experienced paediatrician I apply pattern recognition to the children and infants I see to make decisions on who can go home and who needs further treatment. Experience, research evidence and previous errors keep me healthily skeptical so I don’t make snap judgements and communication skills ensure I am engaging with families not dictating to them. I hope I do a relatively good job in this regard.
