The assignment was for a Well-Child SOAP note. Your note was

for a patient presenting with a CC of dysuria which is a problem-

focused visit. Additionally, there were quite a few subjective

components that were not addressed (probably because you

used a universal tempplate). You needed to use the SOAP format

given in the directions because it is specific for pediatrics.

Components such as nutrition, growth and development should

be addressed.

This is the new format.

Problem-focused SOAP Note Format

Demographic Data

• Age, and gender (must be HIPAA compliant)

Subjective

• Chief Complaint (CC): A short statement about why they are there

for…). Elaborate using the acronym OLDCART: Onset, Location, Duration,

Characteristics, Aggravating/Alleviating Factors, Relieving Factors, Treatment
