mHealth for Paediatricians Course

mHealth for Paediatricians

We’ve had a request to produce a new module of the mHealth for Healthcare Professionals course (that we originally developed for the Healthcare Informatics Society) for Paediatricians and would like you to contribute, attend the meeting and suggest topics we should include.

It is a great honour for us to have Professor Sam Lingam MD (Hons) FRCPCH FRCP (Glas) DCH DRCOG, Consultant in Paediatrics and Adolescent Medicine & Medical Director of the Harley Street Paediatric Chambers, as Chair of the meeting.  An incredibly caring and experienced Paediatrician who has for 30+ years been sharing medical notes with Patients he will also be launching his new mHealth tool that enables Parents/Carers to share a high quality Paediatric Long Term Condition and Allergy History using their mobile at the meeting.

Below is a draft overview/schedule that will be updated as the event develops. The course will be live streamed and video recorded and the date for the meeting is provisionally set for Wednesday the 25th April 2018.

Note 1: The 1 hour CPD accredited course will be followed by a 1 hour CPD accredited course that trains Paediatricians to work with Patients/Carers who have used Prof Lingam’s Paediatric LTC & Allergy Questionnaire App and to use the Template for Paediatricians app with their Patients.

Note 2: The venue for the meeting is provisionally confirmed and has a capacity of just 100 delegates so we’ll be oversubscribed (Prof Lingam runs a monthly CPD meeting that is live streamed from the British Medical Association House that has a capacity of 200 and that’s regularly oversubscribed) so if you’d like to register to attend the meeting or livestream please get in touch via the comments below or by emailing David Doherty ( with your details.
