Abstract

Reflux and Gastro oesophageal Disease (GORD) in infants is a commonly known condition, yet research indicates that it is often over diagnosed and poorly managed. Nurses and health care professionals are often the first contact that parents have when concerns about their child’s feeding arise. In order to ensure that these infants, children and young people are provided with appropriate access to education and management options, it is essential that professionals are equipped with knowledge on the differences between Reflux and GORD and what interventions are in the best interests of the child and family. This article discusses the common symptoms of Reflux and GORD and what strategies can be developed to ensure effective nursing care is delivered from the outset of assessments.
