Additional Education

In addition to the exceptional educational programming included in the PHM 2017 conference there are more educational opportunities for pediatric hospital medicine professionals available in conjunction with PHM 2017.

NEW Pre-course Offering in Conjunction with PHM 2017

  • Are you in a position where you care for newborns and attend deliveries?
  • Does the thought of resuscitating a micropreemie make you nervous?
  • Do you want more hands-on practice for different newborn procedures and skills?
  • Have you experienced challenges in implementing NRP 7th edition changes in your delivery rooms?

Newborn care and delivery room management are part of the Pediatric Hospitalist Medicine Core Competencies. Increasingly, the role of delivery attendance and newborn resuscitation in community hospital settings is being allocated to pediatric hospitalists instead of neonatologists. In this Newborn Medicine Pre-course, you will practice your procedural skills, lead a resuscitation simulation, and review “Golden Hour” practices for managing the delivery of a preemie. Faculty will also discuss pearls and pitfalls of implementation of NRP 7th edition changes, including management of meconium stained infants, optimal timing of cord clamping, and ECG monitoring in the delivery room.

This course will take place on Thursday, July 20, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
To ensure each participant has maximum hands-on time, this course is limited to 30 participants.

The SPS Sedation Provider Course® is designed for healthcare providers (physicians, nurses and advanced practice nurses). This one-day course has been designed to meet the needs of a spectrum of novice and experienced sedation providers seeking both cognitive (didactic) and psychomotor (simulation) based education and training. The course focuses on patient selection and risk assessment (safety), general approach to procedural sedation, sedation monitoring, sedative drug pharmacology and the recognition and management of the more common sedation related adverse events. This evidence-based course simulates the high risk, low frequency serious adverse events that may lead to cardiac arrest and death if not appropriately managed.  To afford each participant maximum hands-on time, the course is limited to 24 participants.
