The DFTB team have been working very hard, along with the rest of the organising committee, to put together a great program for DFTB17. And now you can see it for yourself.


View the DFTB17 Program


DFTB17 is a brand new acute paediatric conference. It will cover cutting-edge research and insight into paediatric care.

It is aimed at:

  • General paediatricians
  • Paediatric emergency physicians
  • Emergency physicians
  • GPs
  • Paediatric trainees
  • Emergency trainees
  • Paediatric nursing staff

Our shiny new program can be see here.

The program covers the broad spectrum of acute paediatrics with sessions covering: infectious diseases; simulation; advice for the new consultant; retrieval; radiology; surgery. We will have a session run by the team, and also the PREDICT team will be presenting their latest research.

These sessions are all complemented by some awesome and inspirational keynotes to get you enthused about making a difference in paediatrics. We are really excited to have achieved gender balance in the conference, and we hope this will encourage other medical conferences to do the same.

Registration opens on 28th November and spaces are limited this year, so don’t miss out.

        The program looks awesome… and completely relevant to metro GPs! Just surprised that you list rural GPs as a group you aimed at and not GPs in general. So much good stuff to learn!
