From 2005 to 2009, I worked as a neuropaediatrician at the Viladecans Delta Early Stimulation Centre and also in Puigcerdà. From 2006 to 2010, I practiced as a paediatric neurologist at the Balmes Institution in Sant Boi, specifically in the care of patients with multiple disabilities. Since 2007, I have worked at the SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital, where I am based at the Neuroimmunology Unit and form part of the paediatric stroke study group. I believe that knowing how to listen, understand and provide support constitutes more than half of our work, and that we have to strive to continuously improve these skills.
