Child Health Note (CHN) files are produced with the assistance of expert professionals in Washington State who develop and edit content specific to their practice specialty. Current topics are those developed within the past 3-4 years. CHNs are in Microsoft Word® file format and can be read by both PC and Macintosh® computers. Instructions are provided for each CHN. Please read disclaimer.

See also Archived CHN Topics for Child Health Notes developed more than 4 years ago.

Sending a CHN for the first time? Consider sending a physician letter with your first issue. Be sure to review the suggested guidline for using CHNs.
