Paediatric Emergencies Conference

July 14, 2018

I have been thinking of setting up an annual Paediatric Emergencies Conference for a while now, but due to other projects I haven’t had the time. The conference will deal with the initial resuscitation and stabilisation of the critically ill child in a similar way to that covered in the Waiting for the Paediatric Retrieval Team section. I would plan to run the conference once a year in Belfast and to record the conference and make the content available online.


If this is something you would be interested in then please leave a comment at expressing your interest and letting me know the topics you would like me to cover. If there is a lot of interest I will move this up my to-do list and use your comments about what you want when designing the programme.
