Alder Hey is pleased to offer two new courses for professionals working in ICU and HDU, and a networking initiative, “Improving care for children with gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition (PGHAN) problems in the North West of England.”
Alder Hey Gastro Days aim to provide a regular forum for clinical updates and an opportunity to liaise with other health professionals in improving the health and well-being of the children and families under our care.
The first Alder Hey Gastro Day will be Friday 19 May 2017, at the Institute in the Park at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.
We are keen to establish the Alder Hey gastro education days with members from our local team and colleagues based in the district hospitals in the Northwest, North Wales and Isle of Man to support this initiative.
Alder Hey Gastro Days will be a key activity to further develop our PGHAN network in the North West but also be open to trainee doctors, clinicians and Associate Specialists from throughout the UK. The meeting format will include:
The day will be structured to maximise opportunities for networking by inviting presentations from colleagues within the region as well as expert speakers.
RCPCH has approved this activity for CPD in accordance with the RCPCH CPD guidelines.
This new and innovative programme will develop the student into a critical thinker and a mature practitioner who is able to apply evidenced based practice within their clinical area.
With just one study day per week taught at Alder Hey, students will gain the necessary skills and knowledge to assess, recognise and manage a deteriorating and critically ill infant or child. Students will identify and critically discuss key indicators of deterioration and critical illness in order to advance their clinical practice in managing such patients.
A variety of stimulating learning methods will be used including; lectures, case based discussions, simulations, practical skills workshops and e-learning.
