This event commenced with a Quiz on the duration of Upper Respiratory tract Infections.

Dr.Gupta  discussed  6 week Neonatal checks, followed by his talk on GI problems in children. More time was spent  on reflux rather, however all the constipation content is in his attached slides.

The confusing topic of Cow Milk Protein Allergy in children was discussed by Nerissa, along with a quiz that I  organised for the attendees regarding Infant milk Formula tins. Only one table out of 10 managed to place the various milk specimens in the right box! ( see attached table below). CMPA seems to confuse us all.

Finally , the Community Paediatric Team presented an interactive presentation on the Pathway Primary Care that GPs and Nurses should follow on seeing children with Enuresis. The same pathway was later recognised in a national paediatric meeting.

    Dr.Gupta, Consultant Paediatrician and gastroenterologist

    Dr.Gupta next discussed  6 week Neonatal checks. A few technical issues arose with the Audience Response System .This was followed by his talk on GI problems in children. More was covered on reflux rather than  constipation, however all the constipation content is in his attached slides.

  • Referral Pathway for Children with Enuresis- Dr.Sivaramakrishnan and Dr.Pai

    Dr.Sivaramakrishnan, Consultant Community Paediatrician

    The Community Paediatric Team presented an interactive presentation on the Pathway Primary Care that GPs and Nurses should follow on seeing children with Enuresis. The same pathway was later recognised in a national paediatric meeting.

    Note ALL children with only Primary Nocturnal enuresis need to be referred to 0-19 services initially for fluid advice and alarms as per NICE guidelines; and NOT to the paediatricians.
