RCPCH Annual Conference 2011

Information for participants

A message from Terence Stephenson Last year we moved the venue from York University to Warwick University. We are back at Warwick University this year and that underlines the fact that we had a very successful Conference in 2010. The Annual Conference has remained a constant throughout the history of the British Paediatric Association from 1928 and the College from 1996 to the present day. The Annual Conference in 2010 was a high profile event which drew members together in greater numbers than the previous year in York. A considerable number of non-members from the UK and overseas also attended despite the problems of the volcanic ash cloud. The meeting was break-even financially which it had not been for some time, not least because the Education Department was successful in selling 86% of the stand space in the trade exhibition despite a very serious economic recession. Although we are returning to Warwick, we are not complacent. As it was our first year there for many years, we learned many lessons and this year we plan to make better use of accommodation, facilities, directions and signage, partly based on feedback from members in 2010. The ‘hot topic’ session which is invariably popular has been moved to Thursday afternoon in the hope of keeping members attending until the very end of Conference! The unintended video-link lecture by Professor Bhutto last year, because he was stranded en route from Pakistan to the UK in Rome by the volcanic ash cloud, was such a success and sent such a ‘green’ message about reducing damage to the environment from air flights that we are repeating the format this year by design. I hope that there are no technical difficulties and it goes as smoothly as last year, as it was one of the highlights of the Conference. We are also hosting in Warwick a British Paediatric Surveillance Unit Symposium to celebrate the 25th anniversary of this most successful and innovative organisation, which was initiated by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health, the Institute of Child Health and the former Health Protection Agency. Although we are in Warwick for 2011, we remain very open minded about the future and are considering a number of options. These include the possibility of a meeting which will be held in different venues each year, more frequent meetings held on a regional basis or across the four nations, short and snappy CME meetings in addition to new research, more short courses at the College in London and in venues around the country, and the possibility of a College meeting overseas which some other colleges and medical organisations undertake currently. We have many overseas members that bring a great deal to the College and we are exploring how we can best engage with them and serve them rather than simply expecting them to come to an annual meeting in the United Kingdom. I look forward to meeting as many of you as possible over the three days in Warwick. During my first two years as President, I will have attended meetings to hear the views of members in over 30 cities around all five countries in the British Isles and in Hong Kong, Singapore, Gaza, Egypt and India, but it is always good to hear members’ views and opinions at the Annual Conference. The programme looks exciting and the Annual Conference is my best and most concentrated postgraduate paediatric education of the year. I hope you feel the same. Best wishes,

Terence Stephenson President RCPCH

Session Types Personal Practice

Specialty Groups

These are practical sessions with an expert speaker sharing their views about how they manage a particular paediatric problem. Numbers are limited to ensure the sessions can be highly interactive.

The specialty group session include guest presentations and free papers selected by the individual groups. These sessions contain much to interest the general paediatrician as well as the specialist audience. There are a number of joint meetings between groups this year.

Top tips for dealing with the media NEW This session will introduce you to working with the media and how to carry out interviews. It will be an introduction to why and how you should engage with the media – and the pitfalls to watch out for.

Celebrating 25 years of surveillance Symposium organised by the British Paediatric Surveillance Unit To celebrate its 25th anniversary, the British Paediatric Surveillance Unit will present an overview of national surveillance for rare diseases in children, highlighting some of the important studies which have contributed to our understanding of rare conditions, the evidence base to inform clinical practice, and screening policy. The keynote lecture will be given by Prof Liz Elliott, chair of the Australian Paediatric Surveillance Unit

Clinical Guidelines The RCPCH Guideline Sessions cover a range of national guidelines, the sessions will focus on key messages, implementation and audit, and are presented by experts involved in their development. There is no need to prebook – just come along to find out more about these evidence-based guidelines and take the opportunity to discuss them with those involved in their development.

Plenary

Hot Topics for 2011 Aimed at non-specialists, these ‘hot topic’ sessions are an ideal opportunity to learn about recent developments in a specialty, ranging from important scientific discoveries, new treatments, NICE guidelines and other policy issues. Speakers are chosen for their ability to impart information succinctly and there is time for 1-2 questions per topic from the audience.

Building a successful future. The third National Trainees Meeting This year’s trainees meeting in Warwick will focus on career choices within paediatrics. Lectures will cover all aspects of training from career choices to training flexibly. We will also reinstate last year’s popular question and answer session with an expert panel where trainees (and trainers) can raise any issues they may have.

Considering a future in neonatology? This lunch-time session will be an opportunity for trainees to learn about a career in neonatology. If you are interested but not sure what the requirements are for training, need to find a mentor to help you achieve your goals or just want a bit of advice to help you along the way, please join us.

The plenary session includes keynote lectures by leading experts, chosen by the Academic Board to inspire as well as educate. There are also free papers reporting hot-offthe-press original research, these have been selected to inform the general paediatric audience and stimulate discussion about what is new, important and relevant to it’s clinical practice.

Keynote Speakers

Keynote Lecture 3.6 million neonatal deaths: are we delivering the answers?

Keynote Lecture Tackling inequalities in child health: can we do better?

Dr Joy Lawn, Saving Newborn Lives/Save the Children USA, South Africa

Professor Catherine Law, Institute of Child Health, London

Each year 3.6 million babies die in their first month of life, now accounting for 41% of under-five deaths for the MDG4 target. Progress is being made – but where, why and how, and can this be accelerated? What can British paediatricians do?

The lecture will give a brief history of child health inequalities and describe how many dimensions of children’s health remain socially patterned. It will then examine how child health inequalities have been tackled in recent years and whether these approaches have been successful. It will conclude by drawing lessons for future policy and practice.

Keynote Lecture Trials in neonatal – perinatal medicine Professor Roger Soll, University of Vermont College of Medicine, USA There have recently been a series of randomized controlled trials regarding delivery room stabilization of the extremely low birth weight infant. Practice has varied from routine intubation of all infants at risk, to intubation and surfactant treatment with rapid extubation to less invasive support (such as nasal continuous positive airway pressure) or less invasive attempts to stabilize infants solely with continuous distending pressure. As the data from at least five moderately sized randomized controlled trials emerges, it becomes apparent that less invasive methods of stabilization are adequate and may have some advantages regarding cost and resource allocation.
