Given that DFTB18 was held in Melbourne it was important to highlight the work of PREDICT (the Paediatric Research In Emergency Department International Collaborative)* This talk, by Stuart Dalziel, centred around ConSEPT and the management of convulsive status epilepticus.
We were privileged that PREDICT chose to release the results of the ConSEPT trial at DFTB18, almost a year before they were released in press. One of our core aims is cutting the knowledge translation window down from the oft-quoted 17 years. Being able to present exciting new research like this is just one of the ways we hope to do that.

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.
