About This Program

The program is designed to enhance the knowledge and skills of practitioners providing paediatric procedural sedation in the emergency setting.  Participants will have the opportunity to review evidence-based strategies and guidelines to provide safe and effective procedural sedation in children. A case-based approach will be used throughout the program with particular attention to common presenting scenarios, safe use of sedative and analgesic agents and discussions of potential adverse effects including airway compromise.  This small-group digital program will utilize engaging instructional methodologies that allow participants to interact with colleagues and experts in the field.

At the end of this course participants will be able to:

  • Discuss recent advances in procedural sedation for children
  • Choose the most appropriate agents for sedation based on clinical indication, safety profile and desired level of sedation
  • Recognize and manage potential adverse events from procedural sedation in children
  • Provide a safe and consistent approach to evaluating and managing children requiring procedural sedation in the emergency setting
