Event Registration - Palliative Sedation in the ICU
August 13, 2014
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM Central Daylight Time
[add to calendar]
Palliative sedation remains a complex and contentious topic in the intensive care unit (ICU). Clinicians debate about when and under what conditions such treatment is warranted and what types of sedation regimens are included under this rubric. In the webcast, Palliative Sedation in the ICU, the latest offering from the Society of Critical Care Medicine’s Controversies in Critical Care series, expert faculty will examine controversial issues surrounding the use of palliative sedation for ICU patients.
Douglas B. White, MD, will begin the discussion by introducing the topic of palliative sedation. Margaret L. Campbell, PhD, RN, FPCN, will then discuss clinical considerations for use of palliative sedation in the ICU, and Mark Siegel, MD, will review the ethical foundations and potential pitfalls of palliative sedation.
Registration is now closed.
