Curriculum for the administration of sedation outside the operating room in patients over 12 years of age
The "Curriculum for the administration of sedation outside the OR in patients over 12 years of age" was developed by the Universidad Nacional de Colombia, by invitation of the Colombian Society of Anesthesiology and Resuscitation - S.C.A.R.E.
Identify the essential knowledge and the skills required by practitioners for the safe and effective administration of sedation to develop of a curriculum for the administration of sedation outside the operating room in patients over 12 years of age.
Materials and methods:
The curriculum was developed based on the methodological guiding principles of the Clinical Practice Guidelines for the administration of sedation outside the OR, using the PICO approach, in addition to the recommendations according to levels of evidence under the GRADE methodology.
The Curriculum was designed with ten (10) recommendations about the competencies that the professional administering sedation to patients older than 12 years of age must have, for diagnostic or therapeutic procedures outside the OR.
The Curriculum collects the best available evidence with a view to determine the competencies that the professional administering sedation to patients older than 12 years old shall develop, for diagnostic or therapeutic procedures outside the OR, and hence to contribute to improved quality, reducing the variability and morbidity of patients requiring sedation outside the OR.
