In this LSP study day, we will review current understanding of common issues and best practice within the community child health field, including the recognition and management of developmental problems, the multi-disciplinary approach to the child with complex medical needs, and key updates in safeguarding.
There will be a range of consultants and professionals from across London speaking in their areas of expertise on a wide variety of interesting topics related to community paediatrics. This study day is aimed at level 2 trainees but all paediatric trainees welcome. Wider members of the paediatric community multi-disciplinary team are also very welcome.
During this session, trainees will be able to:
- Recognise and manage common developmental and behavioural problems
- Improve one’s ability to manage children with complex developmental difficulties
- Understand how physical and communication impairment may contribute to developmental difficulties and what happens when children are referred for further assessment: what might help
- Gain experience in making appropriate diagnoses, investigation and management plans for children with neurodevelopmental disorders
- Know about the multi-disciplinary approach to the child with a neurodevelopmental childhood disorder
- Improve understanding of educational paediatrics, including the writing of Education Health & Care Plans and working effectively with other agencies in relation to this
