When I think of medical advocacy I think of ensuring the best medical treatment and help for a patient. I would talk to whoever the child is staying with and the medical professionals that are handling the child’s case. It is also important to speak to the teachers, they spend a good portion of time with the child and may see things other people miss. I would ask the teachers if they have noticed anything in particular about how the child interacts and how the child does in class. I would ask whoever the child is staying with if they are aware of the medical history of a child. When it comes to the medical professionals, I would ask if the treatment the child is on is the best fit for the child.
