The ANESTHESIOLOGYTM 2013 Annual Meeting Workshops: Stay Current on the Latest Topics


Participate in hands-on workshops presented at the ANESTHESIOLOGYTM 2013 annual meeting. Hands-on workshops offer attendees a unique opportunity to interact directly with faculty on current topics in anesthesia. Faculty will walk attendees through innovative and emerging procedures while allowing participants the opportunity to get “in the heads of the experts” and learn first-hand how to administer various techniques.


Try your hand at one of the new cadaver workshops for 2013 such as “Physical Exam Workshop for Pain Physicians,” “Spinal Imaging for the Pain Medicine Physician” and “Practical Pain Medicine Billing,” which focuses on pain medicine and management. Other cadaver workshop topics explore fluoroscopy, ultrasound-guided injections and regional anesthesia, while others offer an informative interactive experience within pain management and regional anesthesiology tracks.


Clinical workshops offer didactic lecture and action-based activity to participants and focus on a variety of techniques relevant to today’s anesthesiologists. New clinical workshops for 2013 include “Case-Based Quality Management,” “Everyday Peripheral Nerve Blocks for Head and Neck Surgery” and “Spinal Imaging for the Pain Medicine Physician.” Other clinical workshops encompass topics relevant to TEE, the pediatric airway, UGRA and many more. Clinical workshops cover a variety of learning tracks, including ambulatory anesthesia, cardiac anesthesia, critical care medicine, fundamentals of anesthesiology, neuroanesthesia, pain medicine, pediatric anesthesia, professional issues, and regional anesthesia and acute pain.


The ANESTHESIOLOGYTM 2013 annual meeting also offers attendees opportunities to help fulfill Maintenance of Certification in Anesthesiology (MOCA®) requirements. Workshops are one of the ways participants can earn Part 2 Patient Safety credit. A new addition to the MOC-PS Sessions, as part of the clinical program for 2013, is a session titled “Perioperative ACLS Simulation Workshop” and includes didactic, question-and-answer, and simulation periods.


Both cadaver and clinical workshops are ticketed sessions and must be purchased prior to the start of the session. Because of their popularity, it is advised to register for workshops early before they sell out. To register, visit www.ANESTHESIOLOGY2013.org today.
