2019 Pediatric Hospital Medicine Conference

2019 Pediatric Hospital Medicine Conference

The Pediatric Hospital Medicine 2019 Conference (PHM 2019) is the premier educational and networking conference for pediatric hospitalists and other professionals specializing in the care of hospitalized children. The largest meeting of its kind for pediatric hospitalists, the conference is co-sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), the AAP Section on Hospital Medicine (SOHM), the Academic Pediatric Association (APA), and the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM).


Goal of PHM 2019

Pediatric Hospitalists provide leadership in the care of pediatric patients throughout the hospital. This includes significant roles in clinical medicine and medical education as well as roles in quality, research, hospital leadership, business practice and innovation. The goal of PHM 2019 is to increase and enhance participants knowledge and competence in the areas of innovation, clinical medicine, education, health services, practice management, quality improvement, and research. Innovation in all of its forms is the emphasis of PHM 2019 and the knowledge participants acquire will help individual hospitalists improve their practice and will also promote the necessary skills required to continue moving the field of pediatric hospital medicine forward.



PHM 2019 Pre-Course Educational Opportunities:


Society for Pediatric Sedation (SPS) Sedation Provider Course®


The Society for Pediatric Sedation (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 or less.


The SPS Sedation Provider Course® will take place prior to the start of PHM 2019 and will be held at the University of Washington School of Nursing Simulation Center in Seattle, WA.
