What you'll learn

Pediatric assessment is entirely different from that of adult health assessment. A pediatric body undergoes constant developmental changes both physically, mentally. As the child grows, there is a constant change in structure, brain development, nutrition requirements, etc. All have to be addressed and mold a child in terms of health into the right path.


This can help in assessing any other unknown, hidden abnormalities, developing changes, mental disturbances in a growing child. A pediatric assessment is carried out as part of a well-child visit to determine growth and developmental patterns, and assists in identifying congenital problems, abnormalities, and disorders. There are many ways of assessing pediatric growth some of which include nutritional assessment, brain development assessment, physical assessment through the pediatric assessment triangle.

Pediatric assessment triangle has become the cornerstone for all the growing and school-going children which is a tool that can conveniently assess anytime. Therefore knowledge of factors for pediatric assessment, which tools are used, how to assess the growth of a child in terms of physical and mental health should be known by medical professionals.

Therefore, this simulation module provides a detailed introduction to the process of conducting a pediatric assessment, covering how to safely assess the head circumference, weight, and length measurements in infants. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers three different scenarios that test your ability to perform a pediatric assessment.
