Abstract

Procedural Sedation is a widely used practice in many hospital departments' clinics and offices. To our knowledge there are no comprehensive educational courses available regionally, provincially or nationally for nurses to enroll in to educate nurses and facilitate the practice and administration of sedation. We designed an interactive multimedia online curriculum based on the Center of Excellence for Surgical Education and Innovation (CESEI) Learning Management System that included both theoretical and practical knowledge specific to Procedural Sedation. This paper assesses the efficacy of the development of the interactive curriculum in conjunction with patient simulation. Results of the study revealed that this combination of methods improves theoretical and experiential learning.
