Fundamentals of Patient Safety 2018 is an interactive, online CME course covering patient safety principles, reinforced with anesthesia-specific scenarios and examples. Case studies, quizzes and exercises within the course provide ample opportunity to apply patient safety concepts to the practice of anesthesiology. This course helps fulfill the patient safety CME requirement for Part 2 of the ABA MOCA®.
NEW FEATURE: Each lesson offers 3 different formats: an interactive presentation, a print version, and an audio version. We recommend accessing the interactive presentation for the best learning experience.
This activity contributes to the patient safety CME requirement for Part II: Lifelong Learning and Self-Assessment of the American Board of Anesthesiology’s (ABA) redesigned Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology Program® (MOCA®), known as MOCA 2.0™. Please consult the ABA website, www.theABA.org, for a list of all MOCA 2.0 requirements.
