The LSP study days are organised by the Royal Society of Medicine and the London School of Paediatrics. The study days are aimed at ST4-5 trainees, although paediatricians at all levels of training and career find them of interest.

This day will cover a number of topics in non-malignant haematology relevant to the RCPCH curriculum, including common bleeding problems, immune cytopenias, acute management of complications of sickle cell disease, sickle care pathways in infancy and TYA age groups, current curative treatments and updates on gene therapy. It also includes career guidance, case based discussions and basics of transfusion therapy.

Delegates can expect an update on haematology (non-malignant) cases and diagnoses in paediatrics.

 

Topics include:

  • Recognise and manage acute complications of sickle cell disease
  • The neonatal screening programme and follow up care
  • Transitional pathways for TYA age patients
  • The current status of bone marrow transplant (BMT) and gene therapy in the treatment of haemoglobinopathies
  • Assess and formulate differential diagnoses in childhood anaemia
  • Recognise and manage acute immune thrombocytopenia
  • Initiate investigations and management of bleeding disorders

 

Dr Aoife Molloy's LME: clinical leadership in a world of management

Healthcare excellence in paediatrics is driven by effective leadership and management working alongside high-quality clinical care. Every clinician has the knowledge and responsibility to engage with managerial processes, to contribute to healthcare decisions for our patients at multiple levels, in every way we can.

But how do we lean across the table to start that conversation whilst keeping our focus on the patient? 

Dr Aoife Molloy is Clinical Lead for the Evidence-Based Interventions Programme at NHS England, an ID doctor with an MSc in Public Health and a former National Medical Director’s Clinical Fellow. She has done extensive and multinational work in strategy, education and guideline adaptation, with wide-ranging experience in hospital medicine, arms length bodies, a think tank and a co-ordinating body for the Royal Colleges.

Join us to explore the nature of these challenges. Come and learn the skills needed to remain true to the aspirations and needs of a clinician, whilst navigating the complex world of policy, process and power. 

Paediatricians at all levels encouraged to attend.
