On behalf of the Society for Pediatric Sedation, I’d like to welcome you to our SPS 2022 Annual Meeting!
We are so excited to once again be meeting in-person! We hope this conference not only offers you a chance to build on your sedation knowledge and skills but also reconnect with colleagues and make new friends! And let's not forget the chance to experience some well-deserved relaxation in the beautiful Pacific Northwest exploring the culinary delights, musical entertainment and the natural wonders of Seattle.
This year’s Annual Conference will offer plenary lectures, problem-based learning sessions, and multiple options for breakout sessions presented by national and international experts. We will keep you up-to-date with the latest sedation research through our review of the year’s top journal articles, oral abstract presentations, and virtual poster presentations. And, as always, our topics are tailored to both new and experienced sedation providers from across multiple pediatric disciplines including medical, dental, nursing and Child Life Specialists.
Our continued planning for an in-person meeting comes after thoughtful consideration regarding COVID-19 with the safety of all attendees as paramount. We have taken a data-driven approach that includes guidance from public health officials, and the loosening of many institutional travel restrictions. We will continue to monitor public health conditions and CDC Guidelines in the weeks ahead and will keep you informed.
As we join together from across the globe, let’s remember that we are all in this together – advancing pediatric sedation by promoting safe, high-quality care, innovative research and quality education.
Looking forward to seeing you in Seattle!
