Relevance to General Practice

Abdominal pain is a common but nonspecific symptom that accounts for up to 5% of childhood consultations with GPs. It is often challenging to discriminate between organic and functional abdominal pain with confidence. A well-practised, thoughtful approach to diagnosis and investigation helps differentiate potentially serious conditions from the benign.

  • Recognise key features of the patient’s history that help identify serious causes of abdominal pain
  • Select appropriate investigations for children with abdominal pain
  • Manage common causes of paediatric abdominal pain
  • Review practices for handing over unwell children to emergency department staff
