You may recall the headlines surrounding the case of Baby P. Back in 2007 a 17 month old boy died as a result of injuries suffered over months of abuse. During that ordeal he had been seen by the London Borough of Haringey Children’s services and multiple concerns were raised. But nothing happened. Not until it was too late. Eight years earlier the same council had failed to intervene possibly leading to the death of eight year old Victoria Climbie.

Ask any paediatrician what the hardest, tricksiest procedure that you might ever have to perform and they would all be in agreement – calculating drug doses in the middle of a paediatric resuscitation. In this talk Simon Craig, from Monash, takes us through the how we can do better than scratching out rough calculations on the whiteboard at 6am. He asked the key question…

 

 

 

 

 

This talk was recorded live at DFTB18 in Melbourne, Australia. With the theme of ‘Science and Story‘ we pushed our speakers to step out of their comfort zones and consider why we do what we do. Caring for children is not just about acquiring the scientific knowhow but also about taking a look beyond a diagnosis or clinical conundrum at the patient and their families.

When we learn about feedback it is often from the side of the wise expert, the person giving it. Whilst they might be very good at what they do it is worth considering how the person on the receiving end feels. In this talk from 2018 Lori Chait, a paediatric trainee*, reflects on what it is like to be on the receiving end and how we might do a better job.

Grief is complex and individual. It would be foolish to expect everyone to respond in the same way. Everyone is different. Just like there is no such thing as a normal sense of humour, there is also no such thing as normal grief.
