Paediatric Minor Illness Foundation

About the course

MA Training is pioneering a unique training programme in Paediatric Education for Primary Care Professionals.

Lead Lecturer Dr Prasadika Labutale is a Clinical Lead for the CCG, an experienced GP and previously a Consultant Paediatrician. She has an excellent reputation and has delivered our courses previously with excellent feedback. She understands the needs and challenges of Healthcare Professionals working within Primary Care who see children and babies.

We are keen to help Healthcare Professionals including Paramedics, Clinical Pharmacists, Nurses and Health Visitors to provide high quality evidence-based care.

We use teaching technology that is second to none with teaching as close to face-to-face as possible. It is a very interactive course which requires participants to use a webcam and microphone.

As always our courses are delivered with humour and includes hints and tips from our extensive experience which cannot be found in a textbook. The diploma course is to be accredited by the RCN.

The programme starts with a foundation course which then leads on to a diploma in Paediatric Minor Illness.
