The majority of our schools did not really teach us how to properly organize and process the information we gather during a consult. Clinical success is dependent on a clear diagnosis since it is what guides your treatment plan. We have been taught to jump to conclusions that closes down our more complete view of our patients, and therefore we easily miss what is really there.
How do we come to a clear and accurate diagnosis that will lead us directly to an effective treatment plan and formula choice? It is not magic but it does require the proper understanding and processing of the information.
In this two-part Medigogy webinar series, Sharon will share her best practices that lead you to a clear clinical diagnosis so you achieve better clinical results.
