Allied Health Services
Queensland Paediatric Endocrinology's private practice is unique for its multidisciplinary approach to working with babies, young children, teens and young adults with diabetes and other endocrine disorders.
Our team approach, involving medical, nursing and allied health professionals, means we get to know your child as an individual along with your family.
Our team includes:
- Psychologist Peter Hayton - Evidence shows that preventing and intervening early with mental health and emotional issues can dramatically improve immediate and long-term health outcomes. Plus, we know that diabetes and some other endocrine problems benefit from stress management strategies for the patient - and the family!
- Dietitian Clare Barrett - Diet is important for everyone and that's even truer for people with diabetes and some other specific endocrine issues. Clare helps families learn about healthy food choices and how to incorporate particular dietary needs into family eating plans with minimum fuss.
- Nurse educators - Our nurses specialise in diabetes and endocrine disorders. They will give you and your child valuable advice and education on the practical aspects of managing your child's endocrine condition.
