Digital toolkit for GPs managing infant feeding problems

Whether by phone, video call or even in person - many GPs are continuing to work virtually and these ways of working are likely to remain. Nutricia have therefore developed a set of digital tools, resources and webinars to help support GPs continue delivering fantastic care despite the route in which it is delivered. 

The pandemic has accelerated the need for primary care to use digital channels of communication with their patients and by April 2021 - the General Medical Services contract (GMS) has made it mandatory for patients to be able to access video consultations1

But how ready do GPs feel to handle infant feeding conditions remotely? With around 50% of infants suffering from at least one functional GI disorder before six months of age2-3 can more of these cases of reflux, colic and constipation be managed virtually to reduce the need for parents to come to the clinic? 

In response to these changes, Nutricia have developed resources, tools and webinars to continue to support GPs working virtually both during and after the pandemic.

Dr Hussain Gandhi discusses his remote consultation guide when setting up for virtual consultations and Dietitian Rachel Wood provides guidance and practical tips to properly assess and support infants with feeding conditions - all delivered from a safe, virtual distance. Watch here >
