Conference Summary

In 2017 we are honoured to introduce Dr Damian Roland who is an Honourary Senior Lecturer in Paediatric Emergency Medicine at University of Leicester and a Paediatric Emergency Medicine Consultant at Leicester Royal Infirmary. He is going to be speaking about the Paediatric Observation Priority Score (POPS) that he developed and its use in the Paediatric Emergency Department to aid the recognition of a sick child and assist in safe discharge. We have a spectrum of other topics that have been requested through previous feedback. We hope they will appeal to Emergency Medicine, Paediatric and Paramedic colleagues as well.
