CSA Annual Meeting – California Society of Anesthesiologists
April 14, 2016 - April 17, 2016$1,075
The CSA 2016 Annual Anesthesia Meeting & Workshops will be held April 14-17, 2016 in San Francisco.
CSA’s mission is to provide high quality education that sparks innovation and professional exchange amongst the meeting participants and experts. The upcoming 2016 program is shaped by the feedback from members and past CSA meeting attendees. Reflecting on the ever growing complexity of our patients whom we serve, they set out to emphasize on interdisciplinary learning and thought provoking topics.
This year’s program will not only provide the tools needed to deliver high quality patient care but will also address how to shape anesthesia care for the future. They invited speakers from California and across the United States who will share their area of expertise answering challenging questions in all areas of anesthesia care. The program starts with three exciting pre-conference workshops that will provide participants with hands-on, small group teaching in the following topics:
• Perioperative Ultrasound and Echocardiography
• Thoracic Anesthesia
• Intensive Ultrasound-Guided Regional Anesthesia and Interventional Acute Pain Medicine
All three workshops are designed for you to expand your scope of practice and/or to have a fruitful exchange of your already acquired skills in the given area. The plenary sessions feature concise lectures organized by a subspecialty focus with ample time for discussion at the end of each module.
Concomitantly, the program hosts PBLD sessions led by the same expert faculty to allow for small group learning and exchange. The topics of the PBLDs and the plenary lectures will not overlap, thus allowing to map out a personal learning track on a certain topic throughout the meeting.
Meeting highlights are presentations on frailty, peri-operative risk assessment of already severely compromised ICU patients, controversies about delivering pediatric anesthesia in a non-pediatric setting, percutaneous procedures for patients who are too sick to undergo surgery, advances in post resuscitation care, ethics and palliative care. In addition, the meeting emphasizes the anesthesiologist’s role in enhancing quality of care through involvement in surgical planning, electronic health record driven outcome measures and medical error reduction. The 2016 CSA annual meeting is poised to deliver an excellent educational experience and networking opportunity
