COMSEP Clinical Cases


  1. A child is seen in the pediatric clinic for vomiting. On further questioning you find that the family is homeless and living in a car. Describe how you would approach helping the family. Discuss how you would treat the child's acute and ongoing medical needs.
  2. A nine-year-old boy with learning disabilities and poor school performance is seen in the clinic. How would you work with the school to increase the likelihood that he gets the services that he needs?
  3. You live in a small town and note that many children have dental caries. You find out that the water supply is not fluoridated. How would you proceed with this child? This is what I had in my notes but this is not right.
