Adolescence: Russell Viner at DFTB19

Russell Viner is the President of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health. Whilst politics has consumed a large part of his working week his day job, and principle interest is in adolescent health.  To some of us, adolescents can seem as alien as neonates, with their own language, their own pathology, and their own needs. In this talk from the final day of DFTB19 he reminds us that teenagers are one of the great underserved populations in paediatrics – they are too old for most paediatricians and too young for adult physicians.
