Facilitator Katie Elwig & Ruth Watling
This new course, delivered online, aims to introduce the key aspects of paediatric dietetics for dietitians starting out on their paediatric dietetic careers.
The programme will be taught by experienced clinical paediatric dietitians covering concepts generic to all aspects of paediatric dietetics. These include growth, nutrient requirements, common feeding and nutritional issues alongside the internal and external factors which influence nutrient provision and food choices throughout childhood and is designed to be the very first step into paediatric dietetics.
On completion of the course delegates should be able to:
- Understand the key influence that growth has on nutrient provision throughout infancy and childhood.
- Demonstrate an awareness of key concepts of macro and micronutrient requirements in paediatric dietetics.
- Have sufficient knowledge to complete an assessment of growth and food/fluid intake in paediatric patients.
- Have a broad understanding of common feeding and nutritional problems throughout childhood and be signposted to sources of further learning.
