This is a practical skills workshop for all clinicians who undertake paediatric remote consulting. 


Most clinicians feel a little nervous at times when consulting with parents about their children, and spotting the sick child remotely can feel like looking for the needle in a haystack. This session aims to increase clinicians confidence in these situations.


The learning objectives for the session will be

  • Develop strategies so that we feel we end up seeing the children we need to see, and not seeing those we don’t need to.
  • Appreciate some of the pitfalls of telephone triage when it comes to potentially sick children and how they can be avoided.
  • To consider how the pandemic has affected the way children with respiratory tract infections are treated different now by both professionals and their parents.
