Delivering the best care to our patients matters. Whether this is provided in the prehospital or in-hospital environment it is based on solid foundations and shared learning. Sedation is best delivered in a team-based approach, with all members familiar with its intricacies.


Sedation forms a key part of the management of critically unwell and injured patients. To deliver excellent care in sedation we need expert preparation, an understanding of pharmacology and the knowledge of how to tailor practice to individual patients. As well as these key aspects, we also need the ability to manage any potential complications and to ensure the patient recovers safely to be discharged home.


An online course delivered by a series of short talks from Simon, Rob and James covering the following areas;

  • Sedation overview
  • Patient selection
  • Pharmacology
  • Creating a safe environment
  • The procedure
  • Post sedation monitoring & discharge
  • Governance and audit
  • Paediatrics
  • Case based discussions

After you’ve listened to the talks, complete the series of MCQs and a certificate of completion will be added to your CPD record.
