The afternoon will cover:

  • What are the F-words, and why are they important?; and
  • How can we apply them practically?

Speakers: Prof Peter Rosenbaum, Professor of Paediatrics, McMaster University Canada and Co-Founder, CanChild Centre for Childhood Disability Research; and Lynda Moore, parent champion and parent of Owen, Vancouver, Canada.
