Team DFTB. Peri-orbital cellulitis: Meriel Tolhurst-Cleaver at DFTB19, Don't Forget the Bubbles, 2019. Available at:
In this first session from the PERUKI track Meriel Tolhurst-Cleaver spoke about her research into peri-orbital cellulitis. As a self-confessed non-academic she led the first trainee-led PERUKI study and reminds us that we can all get involved in research. She talks about some of the challenges in undertaking her study but most importantly she releases some of the results.
Spurred on by the idea that we are not following the guidelines that we have she asked an important question… why do we not have one standard guideline and why do we not follow the ones we have?

This talk was recorded live at DFTB19 in London, England. With the theme of “The Journey” we wanted to consider the journeys our patients and their families go on, both metaphorical and literal. DFTB20 will be held in Brisbane, Australia.
