2022 Paediatric Masterclass for General Practice - Language & Learning
Session 1/4 of the Paediatrics Masterclass series delivered in partnership with the Queensland Children's Hospital.

The first session of the 2022 Paediatric Masterclass focusses on children presenting with learning difficulties. The expert panel will focus on how to tease out whether language, cognition, attention or other factors are playing a major role in the child’s presentation. With a case-based, pragmatic approach, you’ll hone your ability to choose and interpret assessment tools, so that you can help guide the family on which assistance is likely to be most useful for a child struggling at school.

This content is approved for 3 CPD points for the 2020-2022 triennium.

Oct 11, 2022 07:00 PM in Brisbane
