DFTB is a unique paediatric grassroots project built by four doctors working in the speciality. Tessa, Andy, Henry, and Ben noticed a gap for providing relevant, high- quality education to healthcare professionals that was practical and meaningful to clinical practice.
What’s in the name? Well, there’s more to paediatrics than just the clinical – bubbles are an important distraction technique, enabling doctors to take a holistic approach when managing unwell children – and have fun.
DFTB has grown since it launched five years ago, and our website now gets 35000 unique views per month from all over the world, and has contributions from over 50 authors. In November 2018 we went global with our Lego study, hitting the headlines in the Guardian, the BBC, Buzzfeed, even onto The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
We launched the DFTB conference in 2017, and it’s sold out each year. Brisbane in 2017 had 450 delegates, Melbourne in 2018 was attended by 550 delegates, and the DFTB team are delighted to bring the conference to London in 2019.
We can’t wait to welcome you to DFTB2019 – whether it is the journey of life from birth to death, from the past to the future or from there to here, DFTB19 will be an awesome event.
