Description

Holistic First Aid Course: TETANUS and Management of Cuts, Grazes and Minor Childhood Injuries by Dr Jayne LM Donegan

Date: Sunday 23rd July 2017
Time: 2pm-4.30pm
Venue: Clarks Healthcare, Benfleet, Essex.

You child comes running to you crying, holding out a finger she has cut on a piece of slate in the garden, your toddler wobbles up to you in the playground with a large patch of skin grazed off his knee, your teenager, who should know better, has been sledging down a rubbish heap in the dark and has come hobbling towards you tearfully, led by a bunch of rather guilty looking friends, with a nail - very dirty, imbedded in her hand. What do you do?

No child is going to escape cuts and grazes as they travel through childhood – indeed, there would be something wrong with them if they were cocooned to the extent that they didn't run about fast enough or climb high enough to fall over hard, or hurt their knees. As much as we want to protect our children from obvious and certain danger, the journey through childhood is an experiential one.

So how do we manage these injuries? Come and find out Dr Jayne Donegan a GP and Homeopath and health writer with extensive experience in child health. She will outline safe strategies for home treatment and red flags which require a second opinion
