Course Description:
Sponsored by the Department of Anesthesiology, Critical Care and Pain Medicine at Boston Children's Hospital and accredited by Harvard Medical School. We face an ever-changing world, and the practice of pediatric anesthesiology can be a risky endeavor. As the specialty continues to evolve, we are pleased to offer you an exciting, cutting-edge pediatric anesthesia conference focusing on innovation, common challenges, ‘hot’ topics, pediatric anesthesia research and interactive workshops.

This year we are very fortunate to have Evan Kharasch, MD, PhD, as our keynote speaker. Dr. Kharasch is Editor-in-Chief, Anesthesiology, and Professor of Anesthesiology, Vice-Chair for Innovation and Director of Research Entrepreneurship at Duke University School of Medicine. Dr. Kharasch will discuss Anesthesia Pharmacogenetics and its current role in anesthesia practice. Additional presentations by leaders in their field include Frances E. Jensen, MD, FACP, who will discuss the scientific basis for the strengths and vulnerabilities of the adolescent brain, and Monica E. Kleinman, MD, who will review updates on pediatric resuscitation.

The conference offers interactive optional breakfast and lunch breakout panels each day. These informal sessions are staffed by our faculty and invited speakers, and are designed to facilitate a two-way learning process between attendees and presenters. We will be featuring a complimentary Pediatric Airway workshop on Saturday afternoon. Optional workshops include a pre-conference full-day Point-of-Care Ultrasound Workshop, Pediatric Patient Blood Management Workshop, Ultrasound-Guided Vascular Access, Pediatric Regional Anesthesia, and Acupuncture. Registrants also have the option to pair two or three days of the conference with a pediatric MOCA® course, which will take place in the operating rooms and recovery area of Boston Children's Hospital or Simulation Center.

We encourage participants to share their research and clinical experiences by submitting their work for a Poster Session, which is held during the complimentary wine reception on Friday evening. Our objective for the conference is to create an opportunity for Attendees and Faculty to interact with each other for the benefit of their pediatric patients, education and research. 

Pediatric anesthesia and critical care continues to present challenges to anesthesiologists, nurse anesthetists, critical care physicians, and pediatric nurses. This course provides a comprehensive and up-to-date review of the most important changes and advances relevant to the practice of pediatric anesthesia and critical care. The program includes a variety of evidence-based lectures with question and answer sessions, hands-on workshops in difficult airway management, point-of-care ultrasound, pediatric patient blood management, ultrasound-guided vascular access, regional anesthesia and acupuncture. Our mission is to provide information, strategies, and skills for improving care and outcomes for pediatric patients in the operating room, outfield and the intensive care unit.
