This talk was recorded live on the first day at DFTB17 in Brisbane.
David Krieser is an paediatric emergency physician working predominantly in the western suburbs of Melbourne. As director of the paediatric emergency department of Sunshine Hospital he has mentored many a great registrar* through tough times. In this talk he reflects on some of his own experience or being on the other side of the question, “Are you okay?”
With a number of doctors in the family it is hard when a loved one falls ill. We’ve all heard stories about physicians who didn’t believe their children had appendicitis or surgeons who thought the broken arm was just a sprain. What happens when you know what is happening but seem powerless to stop it?
(*Time to declare a COI – Andy Tagg was one of those registrars)
