Practical Paediatrics

Practical Paediatrics is an innovative series of webinars designed to facilitate learning in a way that is accessible, convenient, practical and free.

Focusing on topics that are relevant to your everyday practice, and requested through direct feedback following the June webinars on Paediatric Weight Management, registration is now open for an exciting new module.

Module 3: Paediatric Perspectives on Health Behaviour Change

Module Date and Time

Wednesday 23rd November 2016
3:00pm to 4:30pm

Module Instructors

Helen Croker
Clinical Research Dietitian, University College London

Karen Gaynor
Senior Dietitian, Diabetes & Weight Management, St Columcille’s Hospital, Loughlinstown


This new module is designed to specifically explore Cognitive Behaviour Therapy from a paediatric perspective. It recognises that most Irish dietitians are trained in the use of CBT with adult patients, but can find it challenging when working with younger patients and their families. Both instructors work extensively with Dympna Pearson to deliver training on CBT in Ireland and the UK

It is suitable for all specialist dietitians currently working in paediatrics, who want to build on previous training or practice. It will also be of interest to those currently working in the community or a more general role, who want to learn from the current practice of experts and fellow dietitians.
