Personal experience and opinion makes this lecture shine
By Jalil Z. on 01. July 2020 for Treatment of Lacerations

Excellent lecture, thank you very much! I particularly liked the parts where you share your personal experience and opinion: the glue, suturing and the sedation parts. Clear and concise as usual.

Great advice, tone and content
By Jalil Z. on 01. July 2020 for Sexual Abuse of Children

All your lectures are excellent and it shows that you deeply care for children. I'm reviewing this one in particular because this is a difficult topic and I think you excelled in the choice of topics, the tone and advice for young paediatricians. I'm talking about the whole "child abuse and neglect" lectures. I'm going to review more. Thank you!
