Description

With thanks to NHS Confederation, NHS Employers and Horizon Leeds, the 4th Adam Bojelian Memorial Talk (#AdsTalk19)

”Breaking the bubble: working in partnership with children and families” will be given by Dr Carmen Soto (@gourmetpenguin)

Carmen describes herself as a paediacademiatrician: part paediatric doctor and part academic. Originally from Cardiff, she moved to London to study medicine at Barts and the London, before spending a decade working in Leicester. She is currently is a registrar in Paediatric Oncology, at University College Hospital London.

Carmen’s research focuses on the interaction between children, families and health services. Through conversations with patients and families, she realised that a narrow focus on healthcare settings has little relevance to children living with long-term conditions, who manage their health whilst living their lives in the real world. Meeting young people like Adam through Twitter, further developed this sense that healthcare professionals often live and work in a “bubble”, often oblivious of the way that healthcare is delivered in the real world and the impact that healthcare decisions have on children and families. Her PhD at the University of Leicester, “Partnership between families and professionals” explored how children, families, and professionals work together to manage the risks of infection in children with invasive devices living at home.
Carmen is currently a member of the Infant, Child, and Young Person Engagement Committee at the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health. She is also a keen advocate of promoting diversity in academia, and is Chair of the Women in Academic Medicine group at the British Medical Association.

Carmen’s talk will be chaired by Kath Evans (@KathEvans2) Experience of Care Lead at NHS England and will be followed by a discussion of the issues raised and the opportunity to network.

Doors open at 12.00 when a sandwich lunch donated by Adam’s parents will be available
Talk starts at 12.30

Everyone is warmly welcome.
