A Journey Through Family Centred Care

A few months ago I mentioned that I gave a 1.5 hour talk at a conference. It was at the Ontario Association for Infant and Child Development (OAICD) and the topic was Our Journey: Finding Hope and Courage within Family-Centred Care.

The audience was small but perfect for my first solo presentation at a conference. I received the feedback from the conference in late November but was swamped with work and home stuff and didn’t get a chance to post.


Here is what people had to say:

  • Fantastic! Definitely valuable insight that is needed to hear
  • Best presentation in the whole conference! I’ll definitely be checking out her blog.
  • Moving! Absolutely fantastic that Tina would or could share her family’s story with us. Nice to hear a mom’s perspective vs staff. Helpful! Well spoken. Perfect resource sharing of blog & Janice Fialka info.
  • My favourite session of the whole conference
  • Loved this – so valuable

I’m hoping this is just the start to many more speaking engagements.
