What is Don’t Forget the Bubbles? 


Don’t forget the bubbles is an online resource started in 2013 as a way of sharing collective knowledge to provide the best care for children. DFTB founders Tessa, Ben, Henry and Andy noticed a gap for providing relevant, high-quality education to healthcare professionals that was practical and meaningful to clinical practice.

The first DFTB Conference took place in 2017 and has been a resounding success ever since.

Why Christchurch | Ōtautahi?


Christchurch is recognised for its picturesque landscape and culture, but most importantly the resilient spirit that defines its character. Christchurch holds a special place in the hearts of its residents due to the collective resilience displayed in rebuilding after the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011.

The city’s individuality lies in its ability to transform adversity into an opportunity for renewal and growth, fostering a strong sense of belonging among its people. The shared experience of overcoming challenges has created a community that values connection, solidarity, and a deep attachment to the city. Christchurch is a place where all are welcome and everyone can feel a sense of belonging.
