Description

July 16th 2021 Online Event 1000-1400

Why?

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.

What?

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.

How?

An online course delivered by a series of short talks from Simon, Rob and James, live and interactive team discussions and questions from the audience, covering the following areas;

  • Sedation overview and safe practice
  • Patient selection & indications
  • Pharmacology
  • Creating a safe environment
  • Consent
  • The sedation
  • Dealing with complications
  • Post sedation monitoring & discharge
  • Governance and audit

Cost of attendance £50; including access to the recorded talks, supportive materials and MCQs for 6 months. Group discounts for groups of 10 or more are also available; email contacttheresusroom@gmail.com for details

An additional certificate of foundational knowledge of sedation upon completion of MCQs

Who should attend?
