In this episode, listen in with Professor Nick Hopwood for an uplifting life-enriching conversation that’s all about tube-feeding and the heart-filled, ground-breaking work that he, colleagues and families involved in SUCCEED do.
Imagine. Up to 30% of children experience feeding difficulties and as many as 1% of children are tube-fed at some point – but tube-feeding is an almost invisible yet vital issue in our health – and food - system. SUCCEED's interdisciplinary team and innovative approach is changing that:
SUCCEED is the Supporting Children with Complex Feeding Difficulties (SUCCEED) Study Group. It's is a unique collaboration between researchers, families and clinicians who are passionate about helping children with feeding difficulties and their families, and ChildFeeding.org has been produced by the families, clinicians and researchers of the Supporting Children with Complex Feeding Difficulties (SuCCEED) Study.
Professor Nick Hopwood is a Professor of Professional Learning at UTS, and Co-Convenor of the Life-wide Learning and Education Research Group within the School of International Studies and Education. The SUCCEED initiative is supported by the Early Life Determinants of Health, Clinical Academic Group at Maridulu Budyaru and brings together families, academics and clinicians.
For many babies, infants and parents, tube-feeding is a vital part of everyday life, it’s life-saving, and it can be life enabling, creative and joyful especially if supported by creative care practices and networks. Visit ChildFeeding.Org to learn more about:
"As the only evidence-based online resource by parents, for families of kids with complex feeding difficulties in Australia, this is the table where everyone is welcome. The SUCCEED Study and ChildFeeding.org are working for change, so that every family knows the simple joy of sharing a meal, and every child thrives".
