Abstract

BACKGROUND:

No standardized educational curriculum exists for pediatric sedation practitioners. We sought to describe the curriculum and implementation of a pediatric sedation provider course and assess learner satisfaction with the course curriculum.

DESCRIPTION:

The course content was determined by formulating a needs assessment using published sedation guidelines, reports of sedation related adverse events, and a survey of sedation practitioners. Students provided feedback regarding satisfaction with the course immediately following the course and 6 months later.

EVALUATION:

The course consisted of 5 didactic lectures, 1 small-group session, 6 simulation scenarios, a course syllabus, and a written examination. The course was conducted over 1 day at 3 different locations. Sixty-nine students completed the course and were uniformly satisfied with the course curriculum.

CONCLUSIONS:

A standardized pediatric sedation provider course was developed for sedation practitioners and consisted of a series of lectures and simulation scenarios. Overall satisfaction with the course was positive.
