Course Director Invitation
For more than 30 years, this review course has provided the necessary resources to thousands of CRNAs, and I am proud to be the director of a course that has gained such a solid reputation throughout the industry. Designed specifically for CRNAs, this review and update course focuses on not only enhancing your knowledge in anesthesia, but also implementing this knowledge into clinical practice in order to improve patient safety. What’s more, this is the only course offering the opportunity to earn 40 continuing education credits and includes pharmacology credits needed by many CRNAs for renewal of their RN License.
Of course, much of our reputation stands on our outstanding faculty. This year, we are excited to announce several esteemed anesthesiologists and CRNAs who will serve as presenters, offering a diverse variety of lectures, including current clinical challenges, pharmacology, regional techniques, legal and professional issues, and pediatric specialties.
I am also excited to announce that this year we are again offering a hands-on workshop on ultrasound anesthesia designed for the provider who has already been performing regional anesthesia using nerve stimulator techniques. The workshop re-focuses on acute pain management techniques. New in 2013: because of the relationship of pain pathways in both Acute Pain Management and Interventional Pain Practices, a new lecture will be introduced outlining the minimum requirements for those practitioners who may be considering some level of interventional pain into their practices.
As director and lifetime learner, I must say I am very excited about this year’s review and update course; I am confident you will feel the same. I look forward to seeing all of you in beautiful San Antonio.
Sandra M. Ouellette, CRNA, M.Ed., FAAN
