About this event

  • Date and time Tue 21 Feb 2023 from 9:15am to 5:15pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Paediatrics and Child Health

Join us for this webinar, held in association with the Archives of Disease in Childhood, to receive an update from expert authors on common acute and chronic paediatric problems which may be encountered in both an in-hospital and outpatient setting.

During the webinar, participants will be provided with the latest clinical updates and practical tips on managing common paediatric conditions, including everything you would need to cover in a 15 minute consultation.

Participants will gain insight into:

  • How to approach a child with a new presentation of night sweats
  • Developing a structured approach to managing a child with dizziness
  • How the gut microbiota interacts with general health/disease, and how to answer questions from patients and parents relating to dietary fibre
  • A better understanding of child poverty and health inequalities
  • How to diagnose, treat, and know when to refer children with oral ulceration, dysmenorrhoea, or obesity
  • Advances in the psychological and pharmacologic management of migraines
