Hot Off The Press!

The Society for Pediatric Sedation has partnered with Vanderbilt University School of Medicine to develop online CME for physicians.  The subcommittee for online CME, in collaboration with the Sedation Provider Course® Committee, is developing a core curriculum for sedation education which will include CME activities on the entire sedation encounter from pre-sedation assessment through recovery and discharge.  It is our expectation that these CME activities will be released before the end of this year.

Online CME content will be publicly available on both the SPS website and the SPS blog.  However, CME credit will only be available to the SPS Membership.  For this issue of the newsletter we are releasing a pilot CME activity titled, “The General Pediatrician’s Pre-Sedation Assessment.”  Please click on the link below, review the CME activity, claim your CME credit, and provide us with feedback.

Going Social…

SPS now has a Twitter account and will be utilizing social media to send out important updates and developments.  Please visit our Twitter page and follow us to receive the most up-to-date information about conferences, the provider course, online CME, and other topics of interest to sedation providers.
