This activity will improve the interprofessional relationship between physicians and nursing. The goal is to determine patients sedation level, not to over sedate, and know when patients may or may not be experiencing delirium.
After completing this event, the learner will be able to:
- apply knowledge learned from our sedation pathway created for pediatrics
- demonstrate understanding of how to locate a pathway or clinical effectiveness guideline
- improve interprofessional communication regarding sedation for pediatrics.
