This ASPAN’s A Competency Based Orientation and Credentialing Program for the Registered Nurse Caring for the Pediatric Patient in the Perianesthesia Setting, 2016 Edition, is a comprehensive guide reviewing pediatric patient care throughout the perianesthesia experience. It provides information and skill assessment for all aspects of care, from examining the needs of the patient and family in the preoperative area, through the recovery period, to assessment for discharge readiness.
This unique publication is a culmination of knowledge and shared information from a team of expert pediatric perianesthesia nurses throughout the country. The information provided reflects best evidence based practices from various major pediatric facilities as well as years of experience in pediatric practice.
The format of this publication aligns with ASPAN’s other orientation publications for perianesthesia nurses, organized with bullets and including competency statements, criteria, rationale, test questions, as well as a competency check off sheet to establish when criteria are met.
The topics included in the various chapters cover the specific physical and developmental needs across the pediatric spectrum of care as well as the detailed needs of the pediatric patient with airway and pain management, anesthesia specific needs, pain assessment, and emergence agitation just to name a few. This manual will be a welcome addition to orienting all pediatric nurses as well as a resource for nurses caring for pediatric patients in a mostly adult environment. Approx. 220 pages
