Pediatric Sedation Safety
Pediatricians and other physicians (who are not anesthesiologists) and nurses who are involved in the care of children undergoing sedation
By course completion, participants will be able to recognize and treat children's pain and anxiety during medical procedures, acquire the information and strategies needed to prevent and treat adverse effects associated with medication administered to prevent pain and anxiety, and the cognitive and psychomotor skills needed to monitor and stabilize children during sedation.
Participants interact and treat advanced simulators and simulated patients (actors) in simulations of real-life situations. Colleagues and debriefing facilitators observe the encounters through one-way glass panels. Upon completion of the encounter, the participant receives written feedback from colleagues and debriefing facilitators, who observed the session. The participants then review audiovisual recordings of the session with the staff.
