Alternative CE: Management of Pediatric Chronic Abdominal Pain
Emma is in your waiting room with a tummy ache-again. Chronic abdominal pain is a very real and frequent concern for children and adolescents, but the majority of cases do not have an organic cause. Using a biopsychosocial approach, walk through Emma's care in this developing case as you consider red flags, differential diagnoses, when to order tests, and helping her manage symptoms over time. You'll get an in-depth look at the pathophysiology of chronic abdominal pain and strengthen support for patients like Emma in your daily practice.
