In our second episode of ‘The Three Muskapeers’ Drs Damian Roland, Alasdair Munro and Ian Lewins have a chat about what’s new in the literature about COVID-19, including current challenges and controversies in Paediatrics. Contains scenes of rib-tickling.
Ian Summers examines both how we learn and how we teach communication with kids. With the assistance of Callum, the talk includes a beautifully constructed live patient simulation as demonstrated by the enthusiastic (and occasionally silly) Andy Tagg.
Liz Crowe is many things – a paediatric social worker, a PhD student, renowned presenter. But first and foremost she is a mother. In this talk she introduces us to the concept of resilience and asks us to take a really hard look at how we treat children. Are we wrapping them up in cotton wool, hiding them away from some of life’s harsh realities?
Nat has worked for Médecins Sans Frontières in Al Ruwayshed, Jordan. Stuck on the Jordanian side of the border she couldn’t access the patients stranded in Syria in an area called the Berm. She has told the fictional story of Ibrahim, a Syrian child wandering in this place she can’t access and now asks an existential question – what is a doctor in this place that does not even exist?
Aidan gives a guide to safely and compassionately communicating with LGBTQI youth. If you encounter teenagers in any aspect of your life you should watch this talk.
Tommy talks us through the nuts and bolts of making a career in private practice work to support the life you want to lead.
Sarah is a General Paediatrician working at The Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne, and is the Clinical Lead of the Short Stay Unit. During her PhD, she was the lead investigator on the PIMS (Paediatric Intravenous Maintenance Solution) study: a large, randomised controlled trial comparing isotonic and hypotonic fluids for maintenance hydration in children. The study findings have led to practice change, both in Australia and internationally.
Trish Woods is a consultant neonatologist working in WA. She has a wealth of experience in delivering tertiary level neonatal intensive care, both in hospital and on the move. In this talk she she gives us a little insight into what goes through her head when the phone ring in the middle of the night. It’s not just about the neonatologist in their ivory tower but about the baby, the parents and the poor practitioner who is doing the very best they can.
