Growth and Development: Putting it all into practice 

Siglinde Angerer, Clinical Nurse Consultant - Steps in Education
In this session, we will be looking at case studies with the aim of a clinician being able to work through and identify with the family what they really want support with. In some cases, this may mean that the observed clinical picture is not necessarily matching the concern of the parent/caregiver. We discuss this dilemma further and offer ways of walking with the family to navigate their concerns as opposed to in front of them, providing solutions.

Exploring Normal Development 

Siglinde Angerer, Clinical Nurse Consultant - Steps in Education
The infant learns more about themselves through the movement of their muscles, joints and exploration of hands and feet, with the cognitive and socio-emotional processes completing the experience and therefore it is important that as healthcare professionals, we know what to look for.
