Title: Treating paediatric conditions using evidence-based practice
Date: 3 June 2020
Course leader: Dr Julie Ellwood
About the course
Evidence for the conventional treatment of infantile colic (IC), positional plagiocephaly (PP) and congenital muscular torticollis (CMT). This course will look at up-to-date literature on the most effective treatment approaches for paediatric conditions commonly seen by osteopaths. It will compare what the evidence shows us with current national healthcare guidelines and help to inform osteopathic practitioners on useful approaches to managing infants with IC, PP and CMT.
