Patient Safety Highlights 2016 - NORA: Complexity, Safety, Efficiency and Leadership

THIS IS AN ONLINE ACTIVITY. Hard copies are not available.

The last few years have witnessed an exponential growth in providing the so called Non-Operating Room Anesthesia (NORA) services. This has been due to advances in technologies and minimally invasive procedures being performed in those highly specialized areas. That increase in service was associated with increased complexity of the cases and procedures performed in patients who are deemed otherwise not surgical candidates. This refresher course will address safety of care in these areas, examples of sources of complexity and challenging cases recommending solutions and management plans. As well as discussing framework for efficient organization of anesthesia services and leadership in these locations.

These patient safety activities help fulfill the patient safety CME requirement for Part 2 of the Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology Program® (MOCA) of The American Board of Anesthesiology (ABA). Please consult the ABA website, www.theABA.org, for a list of all MOCA requirements.

Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology Program® and MOCA® are registered certification marks of The American Board of Anesthesiology®.
