About this event

  • Date and time Wed 25 Nov 2020 from 9:30am to 5:00pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Paediatrics and Child Health, London School of Paediatrics

This LSP study day will cover common respiratory and ENT presentations. Join this session to understand the pathophysiology of the conditions and review best practice management. This will enable paediatricians to deliver optimal care to children presenting to the emergency department and in outpatients; by assisting diagnosis and informing management decisions.

Hear our key speakers discuss the novel developments in the field so that participants gain insight into current research taking place at tertiary centres that patients may be involved in.

Trainees will also be provided with information about a career involving respiratory medicine either in specialist GRID training or as a general paediatrician with a specialist interest, and how to achieve this. 

This study day is aimed at level 2 paediatric trainees but is open and will be of relevance to all paediatric trainees and acute practioners with an interest in paediatrics.
