This course is intended as an introduction to osteopaths who are considering treating paediatric patients or for osteopaths who treat paediatrics and would like a refresher course on safeguarding and common presentations in the under 1’s. Case history taking, examination and treatment of paediatric patients, particularly babies under one, require specific paediatric knowledge and skills, the basics of which will be covered in this two-day course.
