Like all physicians and healthcare providers, members of the department of Anesthesia benefit from structured and regular review of literature and professional guidelines for patient care and management. In addition, unique to our department is the rare use of critically important emergency drugs, protocols and equipment, which, because of their importance and rare use, need to be reviewed periodically by ALL members of the department. Educational topics are selected each month that provide current information that is relevant to our practice here and have high potential to improve patient care.

Target Audience: Anesthesiologists

Series Objectives: As a result of this activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Improve use of pain management modalities.
  2. Review and use most recent guidelines in Anesthesia.
  3. Review use of uncommonly used, but critically important devices, tools, medications, and protocols.
  4. Use current evidence based literature in anesthesia practice.
