Format

This pre-course is offered on one-day format on Saturday 12 October, 8:30 – 15:00 CEST at the Congress center in Copenhaguen

Objectives

This one-day, hands-on training empowers physicians with vital knowledge for ensuring safe sedation practices in pediatric emergency settings. The workshop places a significant emphasis on equipping physicians with theoretical insights and effective strategies to identify and manage adverse events related to sedation.

Overview

The course consists of both morning and afternoon sessions. The morning session begins with an interactive discussion covering acute paediatric pain and distress, pharmacology, strategies to prevent and identify sedation adverse events, and intervention techniques. This session follows a formal tutorial format.
During the afternoon, simulation training consists of three segments, incorporating two scenarios using high-fidelity patient simulators, and one scenario with a human patient simulator (actress).
