        Pediatric Emergency Resuscitation Program 2022


        As the course Chairperson, it gives me great pleasure to announce the dates for the 6th & 7th Pediatric Emergency Resuscitation Program (PERP), organized by the Emergency Department at Sidra Medicine. This One-day simulation-based teaching program is a MOPH approved CPD activity with Category 1 & 3 points. 

        We understand that there is a growing need for comprehensive, patient-centered medical services for children in Qatar. Our vision is to upskill health care professionals who provide acute care to children through education and training.

        With a highly trained clinical team of Senior Pediatric EM Consultants, Nursing leaders and Educators we ensure high quality, inter-professional learning. Our ambition is to develop critical skills and effective team behaviours in a safe, constructive environment with plenty of opportunities to practice and clarify any doubts.

        This program provides a robust opportunity for health care professionals to practice management of acute Pediatric emergencies, including medical and trauma resuscitation of critically ill children. The program is delivered as a combination of interactive lectures and simulation-based sessions, offering a chance for hands-on practice alongside the professional facilitators followed up with a comprehensive debrief. 

        This program is very different from APLS and PALS course, whereby the candidates have the opportunity to take the leadership role of the resuscitation of acute emergencies under the supervision and guidance of a facilitator. The course has the latest updates and evidence based guidance for managing acute pediatric resuscitation. There is no assessment during the course and the idea is to provide a positive learning experience for adult learners and sharing information to provide better care to our patients in future.

          Pediatric and Adult Interventional Cardiac Symposium (PICS), Chicago


          Sidra Medicine will be participating at the Annual Pediatric and Adult Interventional Cardiac Symposium (PICS) from the 7th to the 10th of September, 2022. PICS is one of the largest cardiac symposia dedicated to the latest breakthroughs in the treatment of patients with congenital and structural heart diseases. 
          PICS will focus on the latest interventional catheter strategies for congenital and structural heart disease in children and adults. It will put the spotlight on technologies in devices such as implantable valves, stents, balloons, and other approaches.

          The program will include daily live case demonstrations from cath labs at Sidra Medicine (Qatar), Sick Kids (Canada), Lurie Children’s Hospital (Chicago), Rush University Medical Center (Chicago), Nationwide Children’s Hospital (Ohio) and Mayo Clinic (Minnesota).  In addition, there will be daily taped cases performed by master operators from Tokyo, Memphis, Omaha, Utrecht, Munich and Cairo - featuring detailed discussions of the cases with technical “how to” tips.

          PICS will also feature special didactic sessions discussing the closure of septal defects of all types, percutaneous valve implantation & repair; stents; hybrid techniques; and much more. The educational program will include debates between surgeons and cardiologists, oral and abstract poster presentations, and “My Nightmare Case in the Cath Lab.”
