Full Day High Fidelity Pediatric Sedation Simulation Workshops

 

 
Description
Medical simulation is a highly adaptable tool for evaluating individual knowledge and team performance. Medical simulation can improve patient safety by raising an individual’s awareness of their practice and by enhancing team cohesion and performance. Simulation provides a safe environment for learning and evaluation, the opportunity to train with the actual equipment used in the clinical setting, and provides for repetition and reflection. This course is intended for practitioners providing moderate and deep sedation in a variety of practice settings. This activity offers a high-fidelity simulation experience to facilitate effective acquisition of the skills required for successful recognition and management of sedation-related complications. This unique and challenging program provides a clinical simulation experience that addresses the proper assessment and management of complications associated with moderate sedation and deep sedation. Following a brief introduction explaining essential principles, participants will demonstrate appropriate patient management on human patient simulators. This full-day simulation workshop will provide each registrant with five clinical scenarios intended to improve individual skills as well as to impart an understanding of a team approach to crisis resource management. Each registrant will become part of a small team which will rotate together through each of the five scenarios over the course of the day. The scenarios are intended to improve individual skills as well as the team’s reactions and responses. Structured post-simulation debriefings will integrate performance feedback, promote reflective practice, and augment future performance. The full-day of high fidelity simulation scenarios are facilitated by national and internationally recognized faculty with medical simulation expertise.

Course registration is limited to provide each registrant with an optimal, educational hands-on experience. There will be two optional “working” lunches which offers the opportunity to have additional hands-on experience with personalized faculty attention using manikins to develop and improve airway skills. The Airway Workshop is intended to solidify skills at delivering positive pressure ventilation using a face mask and self-inflating bag along with the insertion of nasal and oral airways. The Capnography Workshop will give learners a comprehensive understanding of capnography and they will learn why it is an integral part of monitoring sedation to enhance patient safety. 

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the importance of human-factors in the management of critical events.
  • Summarize the key components of a simulation based learning encounter.
  • Describe how to incorporate simulation into the process of training sedation care providers.
  • Demonstrate the appropriate components of a primary pediatric assessment.
  • Develop an algorithm for the management of various causes of airway obstruction.
  • Create a differential diagnosis for the etiology of respiratory depression.
  • Construct an effective management strategy for the pediatric patient with respiratory compromise.
  • Demonstrate appropriate management of the pediatric patient with cardiovascular compromise.
  • Demonstrate proficiency in directing a team during a crisis.

A Comprehensive Approach to Pediatric Dental Sedation: High-Fidelity Pediatric Dental Sedation Simulation

 

Description
A unique opportunity to engage in five unique scenarios, inclusive to all areas along the dental sedation continuum. Anesthesia, Pediatric and Dental Faculty with simulation expertise unite to offer hands-on crisis management workshops for the Pediatric Dentist. A small group setting with limited enrollment to maximize participation, engagement and learning. Participants will spend 40 minutes in each of the five scenarios.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the importance of human-factors leading to and in the management of crisis and prepare for the management of rare events.
  • Summarize the components of a simulation based learning encounter and determine how to incorporate simulation into the process of training sedation care providers.
  • Establish and demonstrate appropriate components of an adequate primary assessment.
  • Develop an algorithm for the recognition and management of various anatomical and pathological causes of airway obstruction.
  • Create a differential diagnosis for the etiology of respiratory depression and understand the different management techniques.
  • Demonstrate appropriate management of cardiovascular compromise.
  • Demonstrate proficiency in directing a team during a crisis.
