With better machines and increase in the global use of NIV for isolated respiratory failure, this course would help the candidates from the developing and developed world in the practical application of NIV.


When things don't go as planned: a simulation-based workshop

​Max Participants: 28

Time: ​08:30- 17:00

Place: NUS Centre for Healthcare Simulation

Fees: NA for non-congress participant, $350 for physicians and $175 for Trainees, Nurses and AHP

Objectives: Medical simulation is used increasingly to provide experiential learning environments. Despite preparation and planning, sometimes things don't go as expected. When this happens, the learning objectives for that session are in jeopardy. 


Difficult conversations in the picu - Saturday Course

​Max Participants: 56

Time: ​08:00- 17:00

Place: Academia, Singapore General Hospital

Fees: $600 for non-congress participant, $400 for physicians and $200 for Trainees, Nurses and AHP

Objectives: Participants will develop skills to manage the difficult conversations in the PICU such as: Breaking bad news to family members (eg. Brain death, organ donation), Disclosure of Medical errors. Conflict in the workplace. Participants will also recognise and develop coping strategies to manage their own emotions arising from difficult conversations


1 day workshop:​ Sunday, June 10, 2018

Continuous Renal replacement therapy in critically sick children

​Max Participants: 70

Time: ​08:00- 17:00

Place: Congress Center, Hall 300-302

Fees: NA for non-congress participant, $350 for physicians and $175 for Trainees, Nurses and AHP

Objectives: Describe the basics of CRRT provision to children across the entire spectrum of pediatric critical illness including peritoneal dialysis. Discuss the latest information regarding the entire CRRT prescription from modality choice, anticoagulation, access choice and timing of CRRT initiation, and the application of CRRT in various disease states. Experience hands-on-training using CRRT machines and learn the practicalities of initiation and common problems during provision of CRRT including plasmapheresis to critically ill children, discuss real life complex cases requiring CRRT


Optimising Mechanical Ventilation

​Max Participants: 40

Time: ​08:00- 17:00

Place: Congress Center, Hall 303-304

Fees: NA for non-congress participant, $300 for physicians and $150 for Trainees, Nurses and AHP

Objectives: As mechanical ventilation is one of the most common reasons for PICU admission, it is essential for clinicians to have the knowledge and skills to optimize ventilator management. This workshop will discuss the available literature, review the pertinent pathophysiology, discuss current recommendations, including the PALICC guidelines, and explore various strategies and approaches to optimize mechanical ventilation. 


Acute Decompensated Heart Failure

​Max Participants: 100

Time: ​08:00- 12:30

Place: Congress Center, Hall 309

Fees: NA for non-congress participant, $200 for physicians and $100 for Trainees, Nurses and AHP

Objectives: Children with acquired and congenital heart disease present with unique physiology and clinical challenges. At the core of the clinical management of these patients is optimizing systemic cardiac output and oxygen delivery. However, in many patients with complex congenital heart disease, balancing systemic and pulmonary blood flow presents additional clinical challenges; particularly in patients with clinical heart failure. In this preconference session, we will address the issue of decompensated heart failure in patients with congenital and acquired heart disease. Sessions will highlight the physiology of decompensated heart failure followed by a session on mechanical support therapies for acute decompensated heart failure.


Difficult conversations in the PICU - Sunday Course

​Max Participants: 48

Time: ​08:03- 17:00

Place: Academia, Singapore General Hospital

Fees: $600 for non-congress participant, $400 for physicians and $200 for Trainees, Nurses and AHP

Objectives: Participants will develop skills to manage the difficult conversations in the PICU such as: Breaking bad news to family members (eg. Brain death, organ donation), Disclosure of Medical errors. Conflict in the workplace. Participants will also recognise and develop coping strategies to manage their own emotions arising from difficult conversations


The deteriorating child in hospital

​Max Participants: 100

Time: ​13:30- 17:00
