Online Course: Feeding Difficulties in Children with Gastrointestinal Disorders

Wednesday, 01 October 2014 13:00

Although feeding difficulties are a common phenomenon in children with gastrointestinal disorders, symptoms are often not recognised early enough, preventing early management and the escalation of symptoms. It is important that healthcare professionals familiarise themselves with this topic, as difficulties may impact on both the child's growth and development as well as the wider psychological well-being of the child and family.

This teaching module explains current evidence as well as addressing some of the more practical issues of management, which may assist you in your daily practice.
