Associate Professor Rob Roseby is a respiratory physician. You might see many adults huffing and puffing around the local park every Sunday, bright red in the face, gasping for breath. This shouldn’t be the case for the children in their charge. In this talk Rob reminds the reluctant athletes in the audience that exercise and sport is good for children – both in terms of mental health and physical health.
So, should we prescribe sport for our younger patients? Does it actually make a difference? And if they can’t play the sport that they love how can we get them back to it? Listen to this talk from Rob to find out how we can make that all important difference
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.
