ESPGHAN/Society of Pediatric Nutrition of Thailand International Paediatric Nutrition



Clinical nutrition has evolved very rapidly in the past decades; therefore, it is vital to stay up-to-date with the latest research and treatment paradigms. In South-East Asia including Thailand, the “double-burden of malnutrition” is still a major health concern among pediatric population. The Society of Pediatric Nutrition of Thailand (SPNT) in collaboration with the European Society for Paediatric Gastroenterology Hepatology and Nutrition (ESPGHAN) have decided to co-organize the “ESPGHAN/ Society of Pediatric Nutrition of Thailand International Paediatric Nutrition School 2016” in order to share state-of-the-art nutritional knowledge and expertise from renowned local and international speakers.


Objectives:
• To offer a comprehensive curriculum on paediatric nutrition, focusing on current challenging issues for both in-hospital practice and child health promotion
• To provide evidence-based guidance on the prevention, diagnosis, and management of pediatric nutritional disorders
• To serve as an introduction to evidence-based medicine in the field of nutrition
• To provide unique opportunities to learn from and interact with expert faculty from various European centers, as well as from local faculty in the field of paediatric nutrition
• To form the network in paediatric nutrition across Thailand and South-East Asia

General information:
The invited participants are composed of 50 young paediatricians who are current faculty members of medical schools/referral centers around Thailand and South-East Asia. These participants in the subspecialties of nutrition, gastroenterology, neonatology, and allergy are supported by SPNT with the expectation that they will further distribute the knowledge and experience received from the School to their medical students and pediatric trainees to maximize the resource utility.


The Intercontinental Pattaya
A traditional resort is situated on a cliff headland in the south of Pattaya right on the Phra Tamnak Hill, overlooking the Gulf of Thailand with just less than two-hour drive from Bangkok. The resort enjoys a beachfront location with unsurpassed views to Koh Larn (coral island) and beyond.
The School will take place in the Phratamnak Room and smaller break-out rooms in the Phratamnak Foyer with views of the ocean and gardens.
