Following feedback from members to move the ASM away from the end of the year, and have it right over the weekend to minimise days off work this year we have shifting it to Friday – Sunday  31 May – 02 June 2018, We hope you like it!

At the ASM, we have a program of top 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 31 May, 01 June 2019: ASDA Sedation Reendorsement Program  (CPD: 12 Scientific Hours)

Friday: Sedation Reendorsement Course – Day 1 Due to overwhelming participant feedback and the success of the Emergency Skills Management Course in improving participant performance during sedation reindorsement simulations, ASDA decided to make it an integral part of the ASDA Sedation Reendorsement program. Since 2016, all ASDA Sedation Reendorsement courses have consisted of 2 days :- day 1 being the skills refresher workshops, and day 2 being the simulated medical emergencies.

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. Designed to prepare participants for the Friday simulations, but is 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.

Saturday: Sedation Reendorsement Program – Day 2 The ultimate immersive experience with hi-fidelity simulation of medical emergencies to 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 02 June 2019: Annual Scientific Meeting (CPD:  Scientific Hours) : 8am – 12.30pm

The program for the Annual Scientific meeting is currently being finalised, but will include essential updates on pharmacology, patient management, emergency management, and regulations and is your best opportunity for CPD in Sedation in Australia.

Remember, if you are practising sedation, you need to be doing CPD in sedation!
