Physical Examination (31 Jan 2019)

By now most non-BIG-registered therapists in the Netherlands will have gained or updated their certificate on Western medicine. Knowledge of Western medicine is important to distinguish cases which you can handle by yourself from the so-called Red flags. Red flags are cases that need referral to a physician. It is not only in the anamnesis (the medical interview on complaints) where red flags might get clear.
