Providing patients with quality care, under not always optimal working conditions, is a challenge for every pediatrician. We all assume that our clinical decisions must be based on the best scientific evidence. However, if we perform a critical analysis of our clinical practice, we observe that there is an unjustified variability in the diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that we use, which are often inappropriate. It is essential to recognize the clinical scenarios susceptible to improvement in pediatric primary care and learn the different strategies that can help us to optimize our professional practice.
