Navigating Unpredicted Times and Preventing Medical Errors from the Pediatric to Geriatric Patients

This will be a live virtual event offered during The National - Virtual Event

Chiropractic pediatrics is on the rise, and many are starting to take the time to educate their current patient population, providing awareness of what the adjustment or treatment is doing. As habits of young children change due to a drastic increase in technology, emerging importance is being placed on getting these kids active and balanced.

For our geriatrics, there is an increasing emphasis being placed on patients ability to function independently. The chiropractic profession focuses on providing distinct & quality care…and knowing the signs/symptoms of when different healing is necessary. This year some geriatric patients have stopped care, and some are continuing chiropractic care, knowing this population of people are the most at risk.

2020 has further propagated the phrase unprecedented times, for now we have a youth that is not as active or balanced, a geriatric population that is living longer but in poor health, and this year both populations were put in the spotlight to protect. This lecture will showcase how 2020 can be used as a wonderful time to educate, influence, adjust and lead both generations to better health – even with a virus that is not going away. This lecture is designed to highlight common missed conceptions, missed diagnosis’, and remind practitioners to look way back when recording a history, all in an effort to help you to avoid medical errors. Attendees will leave this lecture confident in how to provide a safe environment for our geriatric population and pediatric population alike & provide better ways to help conditions of our budding & aging population.  The saying “we take care of our own” rings true, and we are elated to bring clarification & insight as we continue to navigate the uncharted waters of tomorrow.
