PRE-ORDER Paediatric Resources

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Last Updated (Thursday, 18 December 2014 11:45)

Going to print this month is the much anticipated new range of paediatric resources from NDR-UK. Download your pre-order form below.

The range comprises:

  • Weaning my baby
  • Feeding 1-5s
  • Feeding 5-12s
  • Fussy Eaters
  • Dealing with fussy eaters: an action plan
  • Avoiding cows’ milk: following a cows’ milk free diet for younger children
  • Advice for weight gain

Paediatric Covers

Judging by early reviews and comments they are both robust in evidence base and user-friendly in format.

“They were informative and easy to read and I think that the parents will find them informative and useful.”

“I feel confident that the content mirrors the message I am conveying to my patients.”

The resources provide a practical format around which conversation and action points can be based.

They include distinct ‘top tip’ sections to pull out key information and a summary of ‘changes we might make’, as well as notes sections for parents/carers/health professionals to make notes specific to each individual situation.

Paediatric spreads

NDR-UK’s resource production policy is well known as one of the most robust in the diet and nutrition resources field, with peer and patient reviews in addition to risk assessment by a professional dietitian.  All of NDR-UK’s resources are accredited with NHS England’s Information Standard, certified by the Royal Institute for Public Health, and their tried and tested ordering system makes life nice and easy for both public and private sector customers.

All proceeds from the sale of NDR-UK resources are reinvested in resource development.

Do you work in dysphagia management?

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Last Updated (Monday, 24 November 2014 16:19)

If so, NDR-UK needs your input.

Developing information to support dysphagia management is central to improving quality of life, health outcomes and minimising risk. NDR-UK is exploring how to adapt our ‘First Steps to Easier Swallowing’ (ref: 9092), to improve accessibility for people prescribed a texture modified diet following stroke.

Our initial consultations have produced some interesting suggestions for development, including:

  • Making information mobile and accessible in any environment, for example by computer, tablet or related mobile device in or away from home.
  • Provide moving images that could be followed in real time.
  • Provide interactive information to meet patients’ ‘prescribed’ food texture (B-E) and fluid stage (1-3).
  • More examples to offer a greater variety of food options.
  • Touch screen or voice control.

We are seeking views and guidance from as many people working in dysphagia to guide us on what is needed and what will work to meet practical and clinical needs of patients and carers alike. Please have your say in the development of this important resource by following this link https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2WYFR5Y to a short survey.

Many thanks for your ongoing support.
