It’s been a fabulous year for Don’t Forget the Bubbles. We strongly believe in FOAM and so in the spirit of openness and sharing, here are our stats for our first four months.

Don’t Forget the Bubbles launched on 1st September 2013 and we have had great support and feedback in these first few months. Thanks to everyone involved – from Tessa, Ben, Henry and Andy.

One of the main aims of DFTB is to get other paeds professionals involved in creating online FOAM content. We welcome contributions from people of all grades and roles in Child Health.

  • Contributions from 32 different authors
  • 13 paediatric consultants supervise and review posts prior to publication


Types of posts

While finding our feet this year we’ve been trying out different styles of posts – the idea is that there will be something for everyone and that contributions can be flexible depending on the author’s interests and writing style.

  • Topic summaries – an overview of the management
  • Quick reference tables – things like BP centiles, resus drug doses, BSA calculation, where we need to be able to look these up quickly
  • X-ray vision – teaching around paediatric x-rays
  • Spot check – building up our bank of rashes (images and management)
  • From the journal – summaries and discussions on recent papers
  • Podcast of the week – building up a resource of useful paediatric podcasts
  • Expert viewpoint – opinion pieces on child health from those in the know
  • Exam revision help – clinical examination, quizzes, communication scenarios
  • IT – suggestions for ways to make being a doctor easier using the tech available to us


Our aims for 2014

We would like to engage more people in using online learning resources and creating online paediatric content. We aim to collaborate with those around us to create a high-quality, practical educational resource for those working in paediatrics.


  • Tessa Davis is a Consultant in Paediatric Emergency Medicine at the Royal London Hospital and a Senior Lecturer at Queen Mary University of London.
