The Simple Truth is That Children Are Complex – Paediatric practice demands a philosophical approach to osteopathy. 

– Led by Daniel Stuttard MA BSc(Hons) DPO

– Date TBC

– Cost: TBC

One hour lecture followed by extra time for Q&As

Join Daniel Stuttard to explore how your paediatric practice demands a philosophical approach to osteopathy.

We should all know that thinking about our ‘osteopathy’ improves our ‘osteopathy’. Working with children highlights the complexity and uncertainty of treating real live organic beings. Children are in such constant change with the forces of growth and development that anything short of a highly considered osteopathic approach may leave our patients short.

Looking at the requirements for tissue health from a complexity perspective may help us uncover our own biases, acknowledge and challenge them, and look forward to genuine problem solving with our paediatric patients and authentic osteopathic healthcare.

This talk presents reflections on models of osteopathic approach and rationale developed at the OCC over many years.

Daniel Stuttard MA BSc(Hons) DPO

Daniel Stuttard graduated from the British School of Osteopathy in 2003. Soon after graduation, Daniel joined the OCC’s DPO (Diploma in Paediatric Osteopathy), and later accepted the role of clinical consultant and educator in post graduate training, developing and running the DPO and APO courses at the Osteopathic Centre for Children.

With more than 17-years of experience in osteopathy, Daniel also has extensive teaching experience, lecturing for several teaching institutions in the UK and abroad.

Daniel loves his work as an osteopath because it gives him the chance to share in the life and health of others. He sees this as a privilege and regards it as sacred. His greatest challenge has been championing osteopathic principles in providing authentic health care to children.

Dr Nathan Hasson will be presenting an introduction to the assessment of children for possible red-flag conditions that may present itself at an osteopathic practice. Current NICE guidelines will be highlighted. Emphasis will be on understanding the pathophysiological processes of symptoms, promoting safety in the treatment of children and acknowledging practitioner responsibility.

Several osteopaths have attended over the past few years to listen to Dr Hasson’s presentation and have found it very useful for revision. His extensive experience in acute general paediatrics is very informative.

This presentation would be useful revision for any paediatric osteopath.
