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.
