Practical Aspects of
Pediatric Anesthesiology
and Critical Care
May 2–4, 2014 • Friday – Sunday
The Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel• Boston, MA



COURSE DESCRIPTION

Practical Aspects of Pediatric Anesthesiology and Critical Care is designed for the anesthesiologist and certified registered nurse anesthetist who takes care of pediatric patients in the perioperative setting. The recent growth and sub-specialization of pediatric anesthesia has identified specific areas that are unique when compared to the general practice of anesthesia. This course will aim to identify the differences between current and optimal care and provide recommendations and hands-on workshops to help participants learn to manage these issues in their practice.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

At the conclusion of this course, the participants will be able to:

  • Describe differences in anesthetic practice management of different pediatric age groups
  • Hone skills in managing difficult pediatric airway and peripheral nerve blocks
  • Develop treatment strategies for pediatric patients with medical problems including neonatal surgical emergencies, endocrinopathies and cardiac disease.
  • Develop multidisciplinary approaches to sedation and chronic pain management

Boston is beautiful in the spring. This course is located in the heart of the city to permit participants and their guests ample opportunity to take advantage of historical, cultural, athletic and shopping activities. Early registration is strongly recommended, since attendance will be limited.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Anesthesiologists and certified registered nurse anesthetists, SRNAs, residents/fellows in training.

ACCREDITATION

The Harvard Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Harvard Medical School designates this live activity for a maximum of 23.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

This program has been prior approved by the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists for 22 CE credits; Code Number 1028697; Expiration Date 05/04/14.

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada recognizes conferences and workshops held outside of Canada that are developed by a university, academy, hospital, specialty society or college as accredited group learning activities.

AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ claimed by physicians attending live events certified and organized in the United States for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ can be claimed through the agreement on mutual recognition of credits between UEMS and AMA, considered as being equal to the European Continuous Medical Education Credits (ECMEC©) granted by the UEMS. One AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ is equivalent to one (1) hour of European EACCME Credit (ECMEC©), therefore up to 23.75 ECMEC© Credits are available. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
