      Dear colleague,
      We are a group of neonatologists interested in neonatal pharmacology. We have launched worldwide this survey to study neonatal analgesia & sedation management.
      We would really appreciate your expertise and input!
      We´d suggest you to reflect the current management of analgesia and sedation in your NICU.
      The name of the Hospital, that we offer to add at the end of the survey, is requested only to avoid duplicated responses and will be deleted before processing the data. No single person or institution will receive information regarding individual answers to the survey.
      The survey will take 10 minutes or less to complete.
      In case you have any questions or want to comment on something, you can do so via email carribass@unav.es .
      We really appreciate your participation in advance!

      The purpose of this workshop is to increase the skills on the use of NAVA ventilation and lung ultrasound (LUS) in the NICUs. This is the first time we combine both modalities to offer the participants two new ways to enlarge their treatment and diagnosis options. Some previous experience and theoretical knowledge of NAVA and LUS as well as suitable equipment is of advantage (Servo-i or Servo-n ventilators, US machine with a LUS compatible probe).

      The workshop will focus on
      - interpretation of the Edi signal - interpretation of LUS findings
      - utilization of the monitoring capabilities - making a diagnosis using LUS
      - individualization of the treatment - implementation of LUS in the NICU
      - implementation of NAVA in the NICU

      We aim to get together a group of NAVA and LUS users at the same level of experience. We encourage you to participate as a team of both doctor and nurse participants.
      The course includes both theory sessions and bedside teaching with the patients on NAVA ventilation in the NICU. LUS examinations will also be performed with NICU patients. Each participant is invited to present a patient case which has a teaching point on either NAVA or LUS.

      The course will be held in September 19-20, 2024 in Turku, Finland by Dr Hanna Soukka, Professor Liisa Lehtonen, Dr Frank Fuchs and Dr Nadya Yousef at the Turku University Hospital.
      You can apply for the course by contacting Hanna Soukka at hanna.soukka@utu.fi. The registration fee is 800 € + taxes including the lunches and refreshments during the workshop. The participants are responsible to arrange their travelling and accommodation by themselves at their own expense. For more information, contact Dr Hanna Soukka, hanna.soukka@utu.fi

      The MPROvE Academy is organising an international simulation instructor course in the Middle East on the 26th and 27th of October 2024 at the Beach Rotana Hotel in Abu Dhabi.      Background Maintaining a comprehensive approach to healthcare emergency preparedness is at the forefront of departments in Paediatrics and Neonatology across the Middle East. One of the key components is to build a competent, skilled, and compassionate healthcare workforce through inter-professional education and training in patient safety. Simulation-based training plays a pivotal role in quality improvement and patient safety. Importantly, the role of simulation is not limited to training health care professionals; it has the potential to act as an excellent tool for systems and facility changes, which in turn improves patient safety and outcomes. Although simulation training has been in practice in other industries, such as aviation, for a long time, healthcare professionals are still learning to implement this teaching modality to help MPROvE patient outcomes, patient safety and Quality of Care.   Advanced Simulation Instructor Training- One of the most important prerequisites for simulation training is trained faculty who are accredited and credible in the delivery of health care simulation.. There is an abundance of medical faculties across the Middle East wanting higher skills in simulation-based education. Therefore, MPROvE academy has taken the initiative to introduce this “Training the Trainer programme” to healthcare professionals who are already medical teachers and experienced clinicians. Since 2012 we have trained and run simulation courses for thousands of clinicians, nurses, RTs and health care practitioners. This course helps to train individuals to become simulation facilitators, but the aim is the faculty development of multidisciplinary teams. Our program offers comprehensive training about simulation-based methodology in running simulations, debriefing, and advanced principles that make it a modality of improving staff performance and patient outcomes. Training includes learning how to develop faculty, run and administer programmes cost-effectively and use simulation and technology-enhanced learning as a tool in their set-up. The MPROvE team delivers the simulation instructor course in 2 modules.
      Module 1 - The module includes a two-day face-to-face interactive workshop. It comprises a series of interactive lectures, demonstrations and opportunities to practice the skills needed to become a simulation facilitator. It introduces participants to simulation and debriefing in neonatology, accident and emergency medicine, anaesthetics, Obstetrics and paediatrics.
      Module 2:  This module is a 12-week mentored online session to refine the skills further. This also helps to obtain certification as a simulation facilitator and trainer. We assure you that you will become a trained facilitator with the required competencies to confidently conduct/ train/ teach at your institutes. Module 2 enables advanced practice, formal accreditation of skills and formal certification.
      We strongly recommend the programme to all the healthcare teachers/trainers/faculty to further enhance their overall training skills, mainly focusing on translational learning through simulation.
