Arun Gowda, Senior Director at phamax, attended PROSA 2018, the first European Conference on Pediatric Procedural Sedation and Analgesia (PSA).
PSA is a relatively new area in today’s healthcare. It requires diverse competencies and skills from a variety of medical professions. In all the pediatrics specialties, it is crucial to connect with children in order to alleviate their procedural fear and pain, to establish trust and to gain compliance. During the conference, leading experts in the field have shared their knowledge and expertise on the subject in an interactive and dynamic way, providing insights on patient perspective. The PROSA speakers faculty have also discussed optimal PSA-related quality and patient safety as well as ways to determine the most appropriate PSA technique.
