Welcome to the 15th Annual SickKids Paediatric Emergency Medicine Conference

Our conference offers an engaging exchange of knowledge, ideas and innovations with world renowned experts in the field. The conference focuses on critical clinical knowledge and skills that can be applied to your practice. You will have an opportunity to hear from our expert plenary speakers. This year we are thrilled to have Dr. Maala Bhatt, from Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) who will tackle current issues in paediatric procedural sedation. Dr. Stephen Freedman from Alberta Children’s Hospital will discuss an evidence-based approach to management of gastroenteritis and our very own Dr. Adrienne Davis from SickKids will focus on guidelines for the diagnosis and management of concussions in the acute setting.

We know your time is valuable. We want to ensure that you get the most from your time and have designed the program with sessions that test your knowledge through interactive web-based tools and allow you to practice skills in simulated settings. We will use cases from our own ED to highlight issues relevant to paediatric emergency medicine. Our ultrasound workshop will give you real-time exposure to paediatric applications for point-of-care ultrasound in a small group setting with personalized feedback. The emergency procedural and airway workshops will allow you to practice critical procedures including chest tube placement and rapid sequence intubation. Of course there are lots of opportunities for hands-on learning with high-fidelity simulation in the pre-conference Advanced Paediatric Life Support Course.

Please join us for an energizing and engaging conference! We are looking forward to sharing experiences and learning from each other.


Dr. Suzan Schneeweiss
