The Multisociety Sedation Curriculum for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy represents the "sponsoring societies vision of best practices in procedure sedation training based on published data and expert consensus."
"As a natural outgrowth of the Gastroenterology Core Curriculum, the sponsoring societies thought that a comprehensive document covering the aspects of procedure sedation from pharmacology, periprocedure assessment, airway management and the use of anesthesia services was necessary for a variety of reasons," said John J. Vargo, MD, MPH, committee chair, Multi-Society Sedation Task Force, in the release. "Chief among these was to ensure a standardized basis for instruction through the use of competency-based training. Throughout this document, the paramount importance of practice and research based on the highest principles of ethics, humanism and professionalism is reinforced."
The Multisociety Sedation Curriculum for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy is published in Gastroenterology, American Journal of Gastroenterology, GIE:Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, Hepatology and Gastroenterology Nursing.
