Training Survey

It is important that all HP training programmes are based on the experience and insight of HPs that currently work with children, adolescents and parents in Ireland. We have designed a training needs assessment survey to quantify their requirements for education in this area.

The survey has three aims:

  1. To understand the training needs of health professionals related to care of children with obesity;
  2. To understand the current practice related to growth measurement of children
  3. To provide access to free online CPD-approved training resources.
