It’s not easy being a healthcare provider in the internet/cable news era. As practitioners, you are constantly bombarded by queries from an increasingly informed (but not always well-informed) patient population. Parents bring internet print-outs to their kids’ office visits with the expectation that the already overworked, overwrought pediatrician, family physician, school nurse, nurse practitioner, or physician’s assistant will have read every new study and memorized every new development that could affect kids’ health. As kids’ caregivers, you need the most up to date tools for responding to parents and grandparents who understandably have “germ neurosis” from reading the daily headlines.
The tools you need are all in GERM PROOF YOUR KIDS. In this health-savvy society, you will welcome owning the book and arming yourselves with the important answers the book provides for parents. Put a copy of the book in your waiting room, school nurse’s office, or clinic to reinforce for parents the good advice you are giving them about their kids’ health.
And here are some additional aids for teaching parents about kids and germs:
