Abstract

The initial evaluation and examination of both the pediatric and adolescent patients provides the opportunity for the clinician to establish a relationship that will ensure the successful outcome of the visit. In the younger age group, cooperation of the child before performing an examination should be the focus at the first encounter. This cooperation will enable proper positioning and a systematic approach to examination and documentation of findings. Although the adolescent patients may be older and better able to understand the specifics of the examination, these patients present additional challenges for the examining practitioner.
