LAST YEAR'S CONTENT

Pre-Conference
Thursday, March 5, 2015

This year, delegates can select one of two options for their learning needs. You will be given the opportunity to select either of these courses as add-ons to PEACH during the registration process.

Option 1
Neonatal Resuscitation Program (NRP)
8:00-16:00 Cost: $220

Space is limited to 16 people. Register early to avoid disappointment.

The NRP is an 8-hour, interactive program that indroduces the conceps and skills of neonatal resuscitation and builds on the knowledge gained by reading the Neonatal Resuscitation Textbook (6th Ed.). This program includes little or no lecture about textbook contend. Rather, it uses course time for hands-on skills training, simulation-based learning, and debriefing exercises with the neonatal resuscitation team.

The text has nine chapters lessons as well as a DVD. It must be read in its entirety prior to attending the one-day workshop. Each participant must complete the online NRP exam prior to attending the workshop. Proof of successful completion of the exam must be brought to the one-day workshop in order to obtain a certification card.

The online NRP exam must be taken no more than 30 days prior to the course date. Participants must finish testing within 14 days of their original start date of the online exam. If the online exam is completed more than 30 days before the course date, then the examination is invalid and the participant must pay to take it again.

All participants are responsible for ordering their course textbook. It is available online from the CPS Bookstore.

Cost for the course does not include the online exam and text book. Lunch and snacks will be provided.

Option 2
Pediatric Airway Course (Sold Out)
8:00-16:30 Cost: $320

Space is limited. Register early to avoid disappointment.

The need to secure a pediatric airway is a relatively uncommon procedure for most physicians who care for injured or ill children. As a result, it is the source of considerable anxiety for may practitioners. This course will include both seminars and skills stations with a variety of airway equipment and intubatable mannequins with the focus being on securing the pediatric airway.
Key Topics: Indication for airway management, anticipating the difficult airway; selection of medications; sising and correct use of airway devices.
Learning Objectives:
After attending the course, participants will:
1. Understand the differences between a pediatric and adult airway
2. Understand the indications for advanced airway procedures in children
3. Have an appraoch to pediatric rapid sequence intubation
4. Be able to select and place appropriately sized equipment

Instructors: Pediatric emergency physicians, pediatric intensive care physicians, pediatric anaesthetists.
