The Importance of Taking an Environmental History

Health care professionals can play key roles in identifying common environmental hazards that may be present in a child's environment and providing guidance to parents on preventive measures and treatment options. This presentation, adapted from the soon-to-be-released “Pediatric Environmental Health: Putting it into Practice” module titled “Environmental History Taking”, reviews toxicants commonly encountered by children and adolescents, and highlights the importance of integrating environmental history taking into clinical practice.
