Explore the latest ideas from innovators in paediatrics

A new feature for our 2019 RCPCH Conference and exhibition, these talks will showcase the latest ideas and discoveries in child health.

Adapted from specially selected abstracts, these presentations will challenge our thinking on a range of topics and showcase new ideas.

They will use the exciting PechaKucha style of presentation which show 20 images, each for 20 seconds, advancing automatically with the presenter talking along to the images.

Taking place in the main auditorium on days two and three of the conference, these are the confirmed presentations so far.
