New Advocacy Modules Enhance Member Engagement
The ASA Advocacy Division has launched a series of advocacy modules to enhance the grassroots activities of its members as they promote patient safety and the specialty. As part of ASA Team 535, an initiative to have at least one strong relationship with all members of Congress, the modules will be rolled out in a series over the coming months.
Members of ASA Team 535 will be guided through the online advocacy modules as part of the program. At the conclusion of the module, they will be prompted to answer three questions to ensure their understanding of the material. Throughout the program, they will be assisted with outreach to their representative and will be asked to meet with their lawmaker or staff at least once. At the conclusion, they will also verify their participation and interests with a personal phone conversation. ASA President James Grant, M.D., M.B.A., FASA, launched ASA Team 535 to continue to build on growing interest among physician anesthesiologists in being advocates for patient safety.
