Course description

This one-day course will provide you with practical and up-to-date guidance on managing the common gastrointestinal (GI) problems encountered in paediatrics. 
We’ll cover chronic diarrhoea, functional GI disorders, difficult constipation and liver function tests. We’ll also explore whether probiotics have a role in GI disease and provide strategies for how to effectively support a young person with an eating disorder.    
The expert faculty are consultants from across the UK with considerable expertise in this area of care, including Sheffield Children’s Hospital, Leeds General Infirmary and King’s College Hospital, London.
