**************************************


  • You child comes running to you crying, holding out a finger she has cut on a piece of slate in the garden, your toddler wobbles up to you in the playground with a large patch of skin grazed off his knee, your teenager, who should know better, has been sledging down a rubbish heap in the dark and has come hobbling towards you tearfully, led by a bunch of rather guilty looking friends, with a nail  – very dirty, imbedded in her hand.

    What do you do?

    No child is going to escape cuts and grazes as they travel through childhood – indeed, there would be something wrong with them if they were cocooned to the extent that they didn’t run about fast enough or climb high enough to fall over hard, or hurt their knees.  As much as we want to protect our children from obvious and certain danger, the journey through childhood is an experiential one.

    So how do we manage these injuries?
    Come and find out Dr Jayne Donegan a GP,& Specialist Homoeopath with extensive experience in child health. She will outline safe strategies for home treatment and red flags which require a second opinion.

    • Basic Strategies For All Injuries & Emergencies, Summoning Help
    • First Aid Kit – what it should contain and what it should not contain.
    • Homoeopathy for bruising and shock
    • Cuts & Grazes – Tetanus Risk, What is the tetanus risk?, How do you reduce it?
    • The importance of ‘wound toilet’
    • Swallowing Things

    • Head Injuries, Assessment & Mechanism of injury

  • Following on from ‘Vaccination – The Question’ and ‘Nursing Children Supportively Through Acute Illness’ this lecture examines the subject of vaccination safety, efficacy and immunity in more detail. We will look at what the science tells us and discuss whether the evidence stands up to scrutiny. With specific reference to MMR and whooping cough vaccine trials, adverse event reporting, meningitis ecology, ‘flu vaccine, and nutrition vs vaccination. If you are a parent researching the subject of vaccination or a practitioner with an interest in the science of immunity and natural health then this lecture is ideal for you. With her medical background and years of research into the subject of vaccination Dr. Jayne Donegan will guide you through the correct way to read medical papers and help you to interpret the science in an interesting and accessible way.

  • Is there a question? 

    Isn’t it scientifically proved that vaccination is the single most effective cause of improved health in the 20th and 21st Century?

    Extensive investigation of the science behind the hype led Dr Donegan to radically change her views. She believes that every parent should be given the opportunity to see that vaccination: its safety and efficacy, is not a black and white issue, so that they can make fully informed choices about their health.

    Outline:

    • Introduction
    • Journey – how a doctor could change from being a firm supporter of the ‘Universal Childhood Immunisation Program’ to strongly questioning its validity
    • Why morbidity and mortality from infectious diseases has fallen so drastically over the course of the twentieth century, are our children more healthy?
    • Natural infections and immunity
    • Vaccination and artificial immunity
    • Specific diseases and their vaccines
    • Extra Questions/ Plenary

    Should you vaccinate your child or not? Only you, as a parent, can decide what is best for you and your family.
