Ensuring children are healthy is not only vital for an optimal childhood but can also help reduce later incidence of chronic diseases. ACNEM’s Child and Adolescent Health online module covers challenging topics such as ADHD, autism, allergies, recurrent infection, chronic fatigue in children, the role of epigenetics, child and adolescent mental health, and obesity in childhood. This highly informative course also includes optimal nutrition for pregnancy, breastfeeding, birth and development for the early years of life. Experts in the field present the latest evidence and how this works in practice.
On completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Outline the contributing factors to infantile colic and gastrointestinal reflux, particularly in regards to the role of the gastrointestinal microbiota
- List and explain the methods of assessing the factors that contribute to adolescent mental health from a NEM perspective
- Describe the role of the general practitioner in the approach to intestinal worms
- Summarise the evidence-based lifestyle interventions that can assist in the management of symptoms associated with behavioural issues
