Excited for my first speaker oportunity to a peds audience.We a small group of about 20 I did expect a litlle more. The good Things and not so good that needed improving here.
The conference wad set to be the first consist of primary care topics & community health. The second was solid peads with a special section of neonatology talks in the afternoon. The was also a poster competition in the mix.
Lets start with the good I really enjoyed the networking oportunity over a nice healthy lunch with people. We happened most to NICU peps of bar various multidisciplinary backgrounds so we got talking about developmental outcomes of preemie at several stages. Thus we able to cross pollinate with ideas. The were several talk that were really relevant to my posdoc expecially organisation:community health better and those that NICU ones .The most thought provoking one was the method of management explained by the Arizona Prof. McGrath ,developmental psychologist working NICU on neonatal abtinense sindrome: how they reduced the stay to about weekish-ten days reduced the used of morphine derivates. Other talk were little lenghty.
Personal I manage to give my talk to the small peds audience. I was a tad nervous but manage to give a somewhat seamless talk summary a few points as it overlap with the previous talk on the golden hour on my work in ethics in NLS and generate some debate with those in room.
I glad that my hotel was close by 10 walks away. A bonus on get macarons for mum on way back at the airport at Orly.
On the otherhand, the organization of the event needed improving as it was a bit ad hoc from my experience organising .We totally underestimated how far it would be from the airports CDG and Orly : +2 hours using a mix public transport , I used my trusty app citymapper to get there.The conference site was a cute Holiday Inn @ Noisy le Grand, subburds well outside Paris .
