About the Speaker
Dr. Jayne Donegan is well known in the UK for directing parents to sources of information about immunisation and child health safety to help them make more informed choices. We have had her with us for previous lectures and received highest praise from participants about her as a speaker and the content presented.
To find out more about Dr. Donegan you can visit her website at: http://www.jayne-donegan.co.uk/
The schedule for the day consists of two of Jayne's lectures and includes two tea breaks and lunch together to allow for further conversation and exchange. This is a great opportunity for parents to build and strengthen relationships with likeminded families.
The first lecture starts 10.30 AM sharp, the afternoon lecture starts at 2.30. We politely ask to arrive 10 minutes in advance to check in and take your seats.
We will have a limited number of exhibition opportunities for related holistic professionals (i.e. homeopaths, health shop owners, doulas, breastfeeding councillors, etc.) to provide a rounded experience to attendees. A survey after our first conference revealed that parents are keen to avoid pharmaceutical products and wish to know more about how they can care for their families holistically. Having a supportive health professional on board is very reassuring and we are providing the basis for building a support network of this kind.
The first lecture is titled 'VACCINATION - THE SCIENCE' FOR PRACTITIONERS AND VERY INTERESTED PARENTS.
'Vaccination - The Science'for practitioners and very interested parents.
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.
With her medical background and years of research into the subject 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. What does the science tell us and does the evidence stand up to scrutiny?
Making specific reference to the MMR and whooping cough vaccine trials, we will look at adverse event reporting, meningitis ecology, and flu vaccines. We will also consider 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.
What do you do if you don’t vaccinate (and even more so if you do)?
Nursing Children Supportively Through Acute Illness – Fever Management
We will look at health beliefs and fears around acute childhood illness and infections and learn about:
how the Germ Theory of Disease and the Medical Model affect the treatment options you are offered by your GP and health visitor
the Holistic model of disease – using the healing power of your own or your child’s body
the Problems caused by Suppression of Fever
the Basic strategies for coping with any acute childhood illness or infection
a Simple Guide to Homoeopathy for Acute Fever
Presentation of clinical cases including meningitis
