The Nursing and Allied Health Committee of the Society for Pediatric Sedation® (SPS) is a growing group, comprised of nurses, nurse practitioners and child life specialists. This group is dedicated to standardizing care for children and their families, sharing experiences and expertise, supporting those new to the provision of pediatric sedation and encouraging the clinical development and educational growth of all members.
Below are links to Standards of Care and Nursing Competencies that have been endorsed by the Society for Pediatric Sedation®. We feel they are a step in standardizing the nurses role in pediatric procedural sedation.
