The Practical Management of Food Allergies in Children

The Academy for Paediatric Gastroenterology at Great Ormond Street Hospital has teamed up once again with the Kings’ College Allergy Academy, to provide you with a fresh perspective on food allergy management in children. This will be the 7th joint study day addressing practical issues related to food allergies which affect healthcare professionals at all levels.

Food allergy in children is a complex topic with an evolving evidence base. This year, we have picked some topics that have received a lot of attention in the scientific press and that many parents often ask about when they have children who are suffering from food allergies. This includes the newest UK based evidence on Food Protein Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome, the tough questions related to soya lecithin in soya allergic patients and how to introduce nuts and other foods in to the weaning diet. We are also discussing the overlap between non-IgE mediated allergy and a functional gastrointestinal disorder, which is something that has become very topical with our older cohort of children. For the first time we will also discuss the use of social media and other tools for nutritional management; what are the advantages and what to look out for.

This course is ideal for all health professionals working in food allergy, whether new to the field or very familiar with paediatric food allergy. The information will be based on the latest evidence and presented by experts in the allergy field.

RCPCH has approved this activity for up to 4 CPD credits, in accordance with the current RCPCH CPD Guidelines.

Video capsule endoscopy (VCE) provides a method to assess small bowel pathology by filling the endoscopic gap between push-enteroscopy and ileocolonoscopy and allows physicians to visualise the most inaccessible parts of the gut in a minimally invasive manner.

In it's third year, this state of the art course is designed to provide an overview of the application of VCE in children through a combination of lectures, interactive demonstrations and hands-on exercises. The structure of the program has been specifically tailored to address the needs of health professionals who perform VCE studies in Paediatric practice.

Well renowned Paediatric Gastroenterologists with expertise in the field of capsule endoscopy will enlighten delegates on the technicalities of VCE as well as on the pathology recognition and reporting through a series of case studies.

Learning Objectives:

  • To have an understanding of the technology associated with VCE
  • To understand the indications, contraindications and limitations of VCE                                   
  • To understand the principles of pathology identification and report creation

Gastro-oesophageal Reflux in Children: The Pathway to Surgery

Gastro-oesophageal Reflux in Children: The Pathway to Surgery

Course Home | Course DirectorCourse Programme Course Registration General Information | Exhibitors

Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) is highly prevalent in paediatric practice. Most children can be managed with effective medical treatment but inevitably some will require surgery. The positive benefits of anti-reflux surgery in children are frequently outweighed by the adverse symptom profile and the high recurrence rate especially in the neurologically impaired child. 

This course is aimed at all professionals involved in the treatment of children with GORD. It will help you to understand the best options for medical treatment and to help to identify which children may benefit from anti-reflux surgery and crucially, which children should avoid surgery. It is presented by a panel of UK experts in the field of paediatric gastroenterology and surgery. 


You should attend if you are a:

  • Trainee/Consultant in Paediatrics
  • Trainee/Consultant Paediatric Surgery
  • General Practitioner
  • Paediatric Nurse
