    The link to this now seems to be broken and I can't find it on the SU website. Maybe because it is no longer in date?

    Thank you for this blog. I am working with the Southampton University team who are promoting this course. The course takes about 6-8 hours to complete and is aimed at doctors, nurses, nutritionists and public health professionals and so students training for these professions. The material is based on the WHO 10 step guidelines for the treatment and management of childhood severe and acute malnutrition (SAM).
    The material is a great way to learn, using a wide variety of approaches and we are getting great feedback from students. We also issue certificates of completion (in the name of the IMTF), who helped develop the course.
    The course can be used by individuals, but is also suitable for a teaching setting within an institution. The material has been used by the Nursing students course in Southampton, UK a public health course in Ibadan, Nigeria and and an MSc course in Kumasi, Ghana.

    The course is at I hope you find it useful.
