Recommended medical professionals policy

This is RISA’s policy regarding member’s recommendations of medical professionals.

RISA acknowledges that paediatric gastroenterology is a relatively young speciality. While some wonderful advancements have been made, many practicing medical professionals have had limited training and experience in this field. For instance, a gastroenterology rotation is not yet a requirement of paediatric training. So knowledge among medical professionals of paediatric gastroenterological conditions can be patchy. As a consequence, the recommendation of parents of other children with diagnosed conditions can be invaluable.
