Nursing Children Supportively through Acute Illness
Dr Jayne LM Donegan
 – MBBS DRCOG DCH DFFP MRCGP MFHom

As a parent, making your sick child feel better is your first instinct. However, what to do in

this situation is becoming a lost art. Most of us are not trained in medical care, have limited

knowledge, and are reliant upon the doctor for every ailment. This has made child illness

and infectious diseases such as measles a worrying experience.

 

If you would like to end the confusion which arises over conflicting advice given on child

health, stop the fear which comes when dealing with a really poorly child, and have

effective drug free alternatives to hand, then this lecture by Dr Jayne Donegan, GP and

Homeopath with extensive experience in child health, will give sound safe strategies to

cope at this time and outline simple home procedures.
