At the ASM, we have a program of local speakers with advice and updates to keep you current, inspired and confident that you are able to provide safe and effective sedation service to your patients.
Friday & Saturday: ASDA Sedation Reendorsement Program (CPD: 12 Scientific Hours)
Since 2016, all ASDA Sedation Reendorsement courses have consisted of 2 days: being a blend of skills refresher workshops, and simulated medical emergencies.
After having the 2020 reendorsement courses cancelled due to the COVID19 pandemic, this year we will be focussing on refreshing skills and lots of practice in scenarios.
Can you implement BLS/ALS and ABCD protocols in an emergency? These workshops will develop the practical skills and knowledge to recognise and manage the deteriorating patient and medical emergencies. They are also very useful if you are operating on sedated patients or have already done your re-endorsement elsewhere to improve your performance in future emergencies.
The ultimate immersive experience with hi-fidelity simulation of medical emergencies, with Leardal SIMMAN3G, ALSMAN and Q-CPR resuscitation trainers, you will improve performance, teamwork and communications during emergencies.
This is an accredited refresher course for AHPRA re-endorsement of intravenous dental sedationists. (Limited to 36 participants)
Sunday: Annual Scientific Meeting (CPD: 3 Scientific Hours): 8am – 12.30pm
The Annual Scientific this year focussed on various difficult patients and emergencies faced in real sedation practice, as a lightning rod to stimulate your thinking and understanding and is your best opportunity for CPD in Sedation in Australia. In 2022, Geraldine Moses has been invited to be the Keynote Speaker.
Remember, if you are practising sedation, you need to be doing CPD in sedation!
