In-Person and Live-Streaming
May 4-7, 2023


Course Description

Pediatric anesthesia, pain management and critical care continue to present challenges to anesthesiologists, critical care physicians, nurse anesthetists and the perioperative team. Improved survival of children with congenital anomalies has resulted in an ever increasing population of pediatric patients with complex surgical and medical needs. This course provides a comprehensive, up-to-date and current research review of the most important changes and advances relevant to the practice of pediatric anesthesia, pain management and critical care. The program includes a variety of evidence-based lectures with question and answer sessions, interactive breakout panels, and workshops including Introduction to Coaching: Strategies for Curtailing Burnout & Developing Resilience, Acupuncture, Pediatric Airway, Point-of-Care Ultrasound, and Pediatric Regional Anesthesia; as well as a masterclass on Pediatric Patient Blood Management (pPBM) (In-Person Attendees Only). Our mission is to provide information, strategies, and skills for improving care and outcomes for pediatric patients in the operating room, non-operating room locations, and the intensive care unit.

Sessions designed and presented by Harvard Medical School and guest faculty, leaders in their respective fields of pediatric anesthesiology and critical care medicine.

All live stream sessions are eligible for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and other relevant credits. Sessions will not be recorded. Special pricing is in effect for this program.
